M. B. LEAVITT'8 MISSION IN 
MEXICO. 

Manager M. P. Leavitt, with theatres 
at Chicago, Deuver and San Francisco 
under his personal control, has peculiar 
advantages for playing his attractions 
across the continent and on the Pacific 
Coast circuit, wdich he proposes to in 
crease by obtaining possession of a the- 
atre in the City of Mexico. Mr. Leavitt 
left for the City of Mexico about the 
middle of January. The Two Republics, 
a daily journal published in English in 
that city, of January 22iid, says: "M. B. 
Leuvitt, the great American impressario, 
was a busy man in this city yesterday. 
He is not here for pleasure, but has come 
to introduce in the season of 1890-91 
some of the various attractions that he 
offers the American public. He is also a 
bidder as a lessee ot the Principal The- 
atre, which, it luckily it falls into his 
bands, will be made the most elegant 
and snug pleasure resort in Mexico. He 
wasyesteiday altemoon, with an inter- 
preter, at the residence of Mr. Verges, 
the owner of the theatre, for the purpose 
of closing a lease. It is a desideratum 
that all wi 1 be pleased with to see Mr. 
Leavitt in charge of this theatre, as it 
means a complete renovation of the 
playhouse that will make it the finest in 
this ( ity, as the gemleman in question is 
prepared to fit it out in the most modern 
style. 

'"However, if Mr. Leavitt is unsuccess- 
ful in getting a lease on the Principa 
Theatre, lie will make arrangements wiih 
some of the local impressarios to iiitro 
duce his many attractions in September 
of 1890. Among some of his companies 
are a large Kuropean vaudtville combin- 
ation, Aronson's Casino Company ol 
New York, and a big pantomime bur- 
lesque and spectacular troupe. Mr. 
Leavitt has already brought to Mexico 
Professor Herrmann and several other 
well known companies, and his name is 
well establ'^hcd. The lovers of good 
tr( upts should be pleased with the efforts 
of >lr. leavitt to get a theatre, in this 
city, as it means a line playhouse and 
exc< Hem companies." 

"In speaking ot his Western circuit," 
says The Two Republics, "Mr. Leavitt 
said that lie would bill bis uttractions 
from Chicago to Omaha, thence to Den- 
ver, Suit Lake City, Butte. ILlcna, Spo- 
kane, Stattle, Tacoma, PorUand, San 
Franci.oco, Ix)S Angeles, ."-an Diego, El 
Paso, Ml xico and thence back to Kansas 
City < n the way East." 

The City of Mexico is one of the best 
paying cit'cs on theconiinent for (irst- 
cli-s attractions, and with an established 
theatre theatre there Manager Leavitt 
will practically control the theatrical 
business in ihatcity, andbein possession 
of a new remunerative territory for his 
many uttr..ctions. 

Maggie Mitchell, acknowledged every- 
where as the greatest emotional actress 
of pure, domestic life heroines on the 
stage, will follow the California opera 
season at the Bush Street Theatre on 
February 17th, supported by Mr. Chas. 
Abbott and her own efhcient company, 
in a repertory of "Ray,"' a con.edy 
drama; her latest and greatest success, 
"Fanchon. the Cricket," and " Little 
Barefoot." 

Mrs. Kate Macdonougb, the owner of 
the New California Theatre and hotel 
building on Bush street, died in London 
on Mondav of heart disease. She has 
been asut!'ertr from heart trout les for 
years, and did not live to see the entire 
building she took so much pride in com- 
pleted. The deceased was a sister of the 
late Wm. S. O Brien, of Flood & O'Brien, 
mining millionaires. 

It has become a recognized principle 
of law that a manaeer can deny the ad- 
mission of obnoxious persons to his the- 
atre for the protection of his business, or 
to prevent injury thereto, when it be- 
comes necessary to do so. This point of 
law has again been settled at Kansas 
City. A press dispatch from that place 
of Feb. 3id says: "After several contin- 
nar.ces in the suit of Simpson C. Young- 
er (coiored) to receive daniagfs from Ab- 
raham T"<Uih, lessee of tbe Ninth Street 
Thealr jr his refusal to allow him to 
tqke a seat in the parquet of that theatre 
after he had purchased a ticket. Judge 
Field to-day decided that the colored 
nan had no right to admittance to the 
theatre, •"•l if he was admitted he was 
ihere o under sutference from the 

proprietuis or n:anager. 

On March 21st Tony Pastor will cele- 
_brate the anniversary of his 25th year as 



"Colonel Tom," Nat Goodwin's new 
play from tbe pen of Steele Mackaye, 
was successfully produced in Boston, 
Jan. 20th, with new scenery and a 
strongly supplemented company. In 
the cast, besides Mr. Goodwin, were Wil- 
ton Lackave, Murk Lynch, John Ince, 
<3dette Tyler, Isabella Coe, Blanche 
King and Cecile Rush. 

The staging, costumes — and even the 
figurantes within them of "Said Pasha" 
are in elegant accord. 

Some of the landlords of hotels who 
"cater to tbe prof, ssion" crimp the bill- 
of-fare at the table set aside for the use 
of show folks. W. P. Sweainam, of the 
Cleveland Magnificent Minstrels, says 
that he was told by a waiter in a down 
East tavern, upon his calling for the 
'"ruit of the hen, "We don't serve eggs to 
minstrels," and Billy Rice relates that 
in San Francisco the fare was so bad one 
day at dinner that one of the boys went 
out to the proprietor in the office and 
asked for 'a quarter to get something to 
eat." He got i 

The New York Dramatic News says: 
'•There seems to have been a turbulent 
time at Her Majesty's Theatre in Lon- 
don, and it has ended in the abrupt 
withdrawal of Minnie Palmer fiom the 
cast of the Christmas pantomime, where 
she was personating Cinderella in the 
spectacle bearing that title. The rather 
meagre reports sent by cable indicate 
that Miss Palmer could not get her sal- 
ary, and that she thereupon relused to 
play anv longer. The people connected 
with tlie mana_'ement, however, are con- 
tinuing to use Mi'-s Palmers name, and 
she has as \ et been unable to prevent 
this obvious fraud upon tbe public. The 
last reports are that the business at Her 
Majesty's has gre^.tly fallen otf by reason 
of Minnie's withdrawal." f.A. London 
dispatch of Jan. 29ih siat«d that Her 
Majesty's Theatre had been unexpected- 
ly closed, aud the live hundred persons 
engaged in the spectacle were dismissed 
with unpaid salaries.— Ed. Fig.vro.] Tbe 
London managers, including the syndi- 
cate engaged in running "Cinderella," 
complain that the great success of the 
Barnum Show in London has lessened 
their receipts to such an extent as to 
very seriously cripple all the the theatri- 
cal mansgi rs. 

Ida MuUe, of "Said Pasha," will be 
remembered as the charming little Cupid 
of the "Orpheus and Eu vdice" Com- 
pany wliich played some jears ago at 
the Baldwin. 

Patti will have a I • da w e she is 
with us. the will be forty-eight. Now, 
if she had only one year more she would 
rate in the historical '49, and we would 
feel so much more affiliation for her. 

Joseph Arthur, of "ttill Alarm" fame, 
has completed all preliminary arrange- 
ments for the production of his latest 
acquisition, the comedy drama, entitled 
"Pine Meadow." It will be produced at 
the Fourteenth Street Theatre, N. Y., 
March 31st. The play will, in all proba- 
bility, be re-christened, the new title be- 
ing "A Long Lane." 

Robert Campbell, son of Bartley, has 
left "Lights and Shadows" and joined 
"The White Slave" Co. 

The organization of W. S. Cleveland's 
Genuine Colored Minstrels is progressing 
finely. He has gobbled up all the "stel- 
lar fights" in that line. It will be the 
largest and best cullid troupe ever heard 
or seen. 

Francis and Alice Gaillard, two of the 
new members of the "Said Pasha" Co., 
were formerly leading members of the 
Bouffts Parisian, Paris. 

A benefit for the disabled Mrs. James 
G. Blaine Jr., who separated from her 
husband and took to the stage as a pro- 
fession, will be given at Broadway Thea- 
tre, New York, on February 18th. and 
judging from the variety of prefessional 
and amateur talent engaged, will be a 
very enjoyable entertainment. There is 
very little change in Mrs. Blane's condi- 
tion, save that by having her le.' inclosed 
in some kind of splint, which holds it 
firmly in one position, some leliet is ob- 
tained and the hope of her ultimate re- 
covery made a little more possible. Des- 
pite recent interesting imaginary details 
of her riding escapades in tbe park, the 
b: ave little suff rer has for twenty-four 
weeks lain on her back in one position 
in a little surgical bed, attended by her 
sister at the Percival flat, in Forty-ninth 
street. She has learned lo speak" calmly 
of the possibility of her paii.ful illness 
terminating in permanent lameness. 

The Detroit Free Press has this to say 
of Rosina Yokes: "It is not difficult to 
understand why Rosina Yokes is, with- 
in certain well defined limits, a unique 
comedienne. Primarily she is endowed 
with talent for comedy, and she has em- 
bellished and schooled her natural gift 
by intelligent endeavor, large experience 
and practiced observation. As has al- 
ready been remarked, one finds as keen 
satis'factii n in her manner of doine as 
in the thing done, for there is about her 
a personal charm that can be neither de- 
fined nor described. Grace, magnetism, 
the joyous spirit — what has been aptly 
called the vis comica — are all elements of 
her profetsional work. Ti ese cannot be 
mauo tangible save in their presence. 
They are in the air, like the odor of locust 
blossoms." 

It is rumored that a portion of the Doe 
Building, to be erected at tte junction of 
Market, Hayes and Larkin street«, op- 
posite the Mechanics' Pavilion, on one 
of the largest gore lots in the ci»y — if not 
the largest — will be fitted up as a" theatre, 
somewhat afttr the style of tbe Baldwin. 
The excavations lor the foundation are 
nearly completed, and the block will be 
one of the finest in San Francisco. 

The sale of tickets for tLe Patti season 
up to latest advices amounts to $60,- 
000. including the sale of boxes at tbe 
Grand by auction. This makes a fine 
SI. owing. The repertoire for the first 
week can be louud in the announcement

oompaoy li a itroog and cffljleot one and 
promleea to be a flttlDK •acceaioi to "A Poaal- 
ble Oaae." 

A few (xtraoli from tbe New Tork piperi on 
tb« laat repreaeotatloD of "Bald Paaba" In that 
city will ebow bow tbe opera and company 
were rated Id tbat city: 

"Altogetber tbe preient prodaclloo of 'Bald 
Paaba' la well-nlgb perfect."— Berald. 

"Tbe production la complete and tborongbly 
enjoyable In every way "—Tlmea 

"Tbe acore baa mtoj bright and catcby 
alrt."— Commercial Advertlaer. 

"The 'Satd'a' coatnmea are magnlBcenl."— 
Sao. 

"The OallfofLla Opera Company la one of 
tbe very beat orginlzitiona tbat bia ever been 
aeen In tbia cotmtry Id comlo opera."— Dra- 
matic New9. 

From among the favorable notices tbe San 
Franolaco performance received from tbe local 
preaa, we annex Ibat of tbe Chronicle: '"Bald 
Faiba,' on Ita retnrn to Ita native borne, waa 
received with mncb favor. It waa preaented 
laal evening at the lintb-atreet Theatre In a way 
which afforded a great deal of pleasure to a 
large aLd appreclaiiv,; andlence. It la not nec- 
eaaary to aay aoy thing of the plot or music of 
Ibe opcra.aa It la qalte familiar to theatre-goera 
here, but tbia mncb may be aaid for It, tha; it 
holds Its own very fairly with tbe current light 
oprrat, and that a repetition la very agreeable. 
As to the cast a great many pleasant tMuga

The funeral of Thomas N. Dunphy, 
iiie well known bill-poster, took place 
yesterday morning from his late resi- 
dence, l'J22 Broderick street. A large 
number of the triends of the deceased 
were present, and particularly theatrical 
people who had business ilealings with 
liim. The jail-bearers were Jacob Gott- 
lob. of the Bush Street Theatre; D. It. 
Ml Neil, of Central Park; Col. Roberts, 
of the Orphetini ; Clias. Frye, of tlie Cal- 
ifornia Theatre; George Wallenrod and 
Mark Thai), of the Alcazar Theatre. 
Tlie remains were buried in Holy Cross 
Cemetery, San Mateo. 

A lire at Belle Plain, Iowa, on Feb. 
.5th, burned the Phani.x Opera House, 
and other buildings, cau:^ing a loss of 
$25,000; partly insured. 

A London dispatch announces that 
the late well known but unfortunate 
dramatist, Westland Marston, bequeath- 
ed in his will a letter of Elizabeth Brown- 
ing and £200 to Louise Cbandler Moul- 
ton, the American writer. 

Charles Bowser's "Cheek" company is 
back again from the road laying ofi' in 
Gotham. 

"Colonel 'I'ai," Nat Goodwin's new 
play from the pen of Steele Mackaye, 
was successfully produced in Boston, 
Jan. 20th, with new scenery and a 
strongly supplemented company. In 
the cast, besides Mr. Goodwin, were Wd- 
ton Lackaye, Mark Lynch, John Ince, 
Odette Tyler, Isabelle Coe, Blanche 
King and Cecile Rush. 

The staging, costumes — and even the 
figurantes within them of "Said Pasha" 
are in elegant accord. 

Maggie Mitchell, acknowledged every- 
where as the greatest emotional actress 
of pure, domestic life heroines on the 
stage, will follow the California opera 
sea^oll at the Bush Street Theatre on 
February 17th, supported by Mr. Chas. 
Abbott and her own t-tticient company, 
in a repertory of "Ray," a coinedy 
drama; her latest and greatest success, 
"Fanehon, the Cricket," and " Little 
Barefoot." 

On March 2lBt Tony Pastor will cele- 
brate the anniversary of his 25th year as 
a manager. 

The Detroit Free Press has this to say 
of Rosina Yokes: "It is not difficult to 
understand why Rosina Yokes is, with- 
in certain well defined limits, a unique 
comedienne. Primarily she is endowed 
with talent for comedy, and she has em- 
bellished and schooled her natural gilt 
by intelligent eii<leavor, large experience 
and practiced observation. As has al- 
ready been remarked, one finds as keen 
satisfaclii n in her manner of doing as 
in the thing done, for there is about her 
a personal charm that ran be neither de- 
fined nor described. Grace, magnetism, 
the joyous spirit— what has been aptiv 
called the vis comica — are all elements of 
her prote sional work. Ti.ese cannot be 
mada tangible save in their presence. 
They are in the air, like the odor of locust 
blossoms." 

It is rumored that a portion of the Doe 
Building, to be erected at the junction of 
Market, Hayes and Larkin street's, op- 
posite the Mechanics' Pavilion, on one 
of the liirgest pore lots in the ciiy— if not 
the lai ;— will befitted upas a' theatre, 
somewiiai alter the style ol tlie Baldwin. 
The excavaiions lor the foundation are 
nearly completed, and the block wdi be 
ore of the hnest in ban Francisco. 

The saV of tickets for t'.;e Patti season 
up to 1 t advices amounts to $(iO,- 
000. including ihe sale of boxes at the 
Grand by auction. This makes a line 



The telegraph tells us of the death of 
'he favorite, but wayward daughter of 
Singer, the sewing machine inventor, 
Alice M. Lagrove, at Brooklyn, on the 
the 3rd inst., of heart failure. When 
but 18 years old she was a prominent 
sensation in Parisian society. She was 
shortlv afterwards married to W A. P. 
Lagrove, nearly double her age, at the 
almost eominaiid of her father. Separ- 
ation and divorce followed. Not long 
afterwards she developed a passion for 
the sta^e, hired her own cmipany and 
went starring about the country. She 
played under the name of Agnes Leon- 
ard", and the only success achieved dur- 
ing her tour, it is said, was won by her 
magnificent costumes. She soon gave 
up acting. Having become infatuated 
with Bangs, the actor, she was married 
to him by Henry Ward Beecher. The 
honeymoon was dramatically brief, for 
earlv"the next day Mrs. Bangs left lor 
her 'home in Brooklyn. A few months 
later proceedings were instituted by Mrs. 
Bangs and judgment by default was 
given her, as Bangs lailed to put in an 
answer. The deceased leaves, aside from 
her large estate, stage costumes and 
jewelry valued at about $200,000. 

The New York Court of Appeals has 
handed down a decision affirming judg- 
ment with costs in the suit of Augustin 
Daly versus John Stetson. The action 
was for $5,000 balance due to Daly 
on agreement for the sale of the exclu- 
sive rights to produce "Pique" and 
"Divorce." 

Nick Roberts' "Humpty - Dumpty" 
scenes and properties were lately seized 
by a Galveston, Texas, Sheriff at the in- 
stance of a railroad company which 
sought to recover $371 for unpaid fares. 

Business Manager Alexander Com- 
stock, of the New York Academy, is 
back from Europe with signed contracts 
for the "O.d Homestock," to be played 
at the Princess Theatre, London, in 
May. 

The London comedion Toole will ap- 
pear in this country next Spring. 

Of seven hundred and forty-nine plays 
copyrighled at Washington last year 
sixty-two were produced, and of these 
eighteen succeeded. 

The Warder Grand Opera House, Kan- 
sas City, wai sold by the Sherflf for $3.'>0,- 
000, anil will in the future be manaved 
by Arthur Chase of the Booth-Modjeska 
combination. 

William Terriss and Jessie Millward 
closed their American tour on Feb, 1st. 
Mr. Terriss will return to England and 
Miss Millward will probably join A. M. 
Palmer's New York company. 

Some of the landlords of hotels who 
"cater to the prof-ssion" crimp the bill- 
of-fare at the table set aside for the use 
of show folks. W. P. Sweatnam, of the 
Cleveland Magnificent Minstrels, says 
that he was told by a waiter in a down 
East tavern, upon bis calling for the 
fruit of the hen, "\Vc don't serve eggs to 
minstrels." and Billy Rice relates that 
in San Francisco the fare was ■'O bad one 
day at dinner that one of the boys went 
out to the proprietor in the office and 
asked for "a quarter to get something to 
eat." He got i . 

The New York Dramatic News says: 
"There seems to have been a turbulent 
time at Her Majesty's Theatre in Lon- 
don, and it has ended in the abrupt 
withdrawal of Minnie Palmer from the 
cast of the Christmas pantomime, where 
she was personating Cinderella in the 
spectacle bearing that title. The rather 
meagre reports sent by cable indicate 
that Miss Palmer could not get her sal- 
ary, and that she thereupon relused to 
play any longer. The people connected 
with the management, however, are con- 
tinuing to use Mi<s Palmers name, and 
she has as vet been unable to prevent 
this obvious fraud upon the public. The 
last reports are that tlio business at Her 
Majesty's has greatly fallen off by reason 
of Minnie's withdrawal." [A London 
dispatch of Jan. 29ih siated that Her 
Majesty's Theatre had been unexpected- 
ly closed, aud the l:ve hundred persons 
eni;aged in the spectacle were dismissed 
with unpaid salaries.— Ei). Figaro.] The 
London managers, including the syndi- 
cate engaged in running "Cinderella," 
complain that the great success of the 
Barnuiii Show in London has lessened 
their receipts to such an extent as to 
very seriously cripple all the the theatri- 
cal manegtrs. 

Ida Mulle, of "Said Pasha," will be 
remembered as the charming little Cupid 
of the "Orpheus and Eu vdice" Com- 
pany Wnicn played some years ayo at 
the Baldwin. 

Joseph Arthur, of ".Still Alarm" fame, 
has completed all preliminary arrange- 
ments for the pro<luction of his latest 
acquisition, the coinedy drama, entitled 
"Pine Meadow." It will be produced at 
the Fourteenth Street Theatre, N. Y., 
March ,31st. The play will, in all proba- 
bility, be re-christened, the new title be- 
ing "A Long Lane." 

Francis and Alice Gaillard, two of the 
new members of the "Said Pasha" Co., 
were formerly leading members of the 
Boutfes Parisian, Paris. 

A benefit for the disabled Mrs. James 
G. Blaine Jr., who separated from her 
husband and took to the stage as a pro- 
fession, will be given at Broadway Thea- 
tre, New York, on February 18th. and 
judging from tl;e variety of prefessional 
and amateur talent engaged, will be a 
very enjoyable entertainment. There is 
very little change in Mrs. Blane's condi- 
lion,save that by having her le; inclosed 
in some kind of splint, which holds it 
lirinly in one position, some relief is ob- 
tained and the hope of her ultimate re- 
covery made a little more possible. Des- 
pite recent interesting imaginary details 
of her riding escapaoes in the park, the 
have lit lie siiti'irer has for twenty-four 
weeks lain on her back in one position 
in a little surgi3:d bed, atiended by her 
sister at t:ie I'ercival liat.in Forty-ninth

"Tbe OallforLla Opera Company la one ef 
tbe Ttry best orgacliatlcna tbat baa ever been

matic Vtv. 

From among tbe favorable noUcei tbe Ban 
Franolaco performance rircclved from the local 
prear. we annezibat of the Obroclcle: ""Bald 
Fasba," on Ita lelarn tu Ita native borne, was 
received nltb much favor. It waa preaenled 
laat evening at tbe Butbatreet Tbeaire in a way 
wblcb afforded a great deal of pleaaore to a 
large and appreciative andlenc^. It it not nec- 
eaaary to aay aryihlng of the plot ormualcof 
tbe opera.na it la qalte familiar to theatre-goers 
here, bat thia iLUcb may be a»ld for 1>, tba: It 
bolda Ita own very fairly with tbe current ll^bt 
operar, and that a repetition la very agrceablf". 
As to the caat a great m&ny pleasant tLlnga 
may be said abeut It with a great deal of truth. 
Ida Mnlle; as berena, has a part well salted tu 
ber, and tings wltb a great deal of swertnees 
and wl:b a force aSmoit wonderful In such a 
little Uiidgel. Ada Bomera alugs tbe mualc of 
Altl very well, and Alice QalLard, In spite of 
an obvioDS case of grlppe.eang fairly and acted 
wltb a great deal of ipirlt. Fraicis Qilllard 
plays the Pafeba well, but bis voice is rather 
light for tbe pirt. Fred Urtan baa bad tverj - 
thing said about bim that can be said, and the 
tame might be eald of Stanley Felcb, except 
tbat be baa some new drollcrlea, wblcb are 
alUy, but vtrv aicuiing. Jubn Mo Wade make* 
* very good Hasatn Bey, and H. W. Frillman a 
atrlklng B>j-h. Fred Lennox aa Hadad abowed 
a very clear conception of tbe coaedy role, but 
wltb aeligbt tendency to overdo It, As a whole, 
*Sald FaAh.":iB tuvg laat evening waa a auc- 
cea* and will probably be received wlib faver 
during tbe time It la plajed at tbe Busb." 

Tbe Gall closjs Its notice of the performance 
byiajing: ""To see 'Said Paaba' In Its present 
aapeot la to enjoy a light and moat agreeable 
entertainment." 

Tbe artiata ccme In for warm recalls In tbelr 
tuneful numbers, and tbe oi.era Is really spec- 
tacular In Its pretty women In their richly cos- 
tumid marches and In Its elegant scenery and 
•ppolDtmenlr.

week's attraction at tbo AlciZ.r. Its five acts 
have each % separate erst aa the d.ffeient char- 
«ctera drift Into the action of the play. 

Ibe flrat act, tbe aailli^^g of the Anlelope

gypsy. The second act transpires on board tho 
Antelope. The third act la lu Sio Franclaco In

and the last act Inlrudncii the trial with tbe

afterwards Mr*. Perry, and Mies Nillle \oorg 
appeara as Florence Blyibo, tbe principal 
claimant. In the last act. 

Tbe first two ac's paas along smoothly. In 
tbe '49 act tbe local Interests begins lu lU 
scenes and characters, tbat are very well de- 
pleted, which Increases aa modern San Frac- 
olaco Is pretinttd with Its street scene, wltb 
the Introduction of several weP.knowo cbarac-

old man without a hat who aella newspapers at 
tbe Lolta Fountain, the ai veL-foot-alx darky

Is the culminating feature of tbe fifth act of 
The Great Blythe 0»8e," Alice and Florence 
are placed under ez>mlnatlon. Tbe lawyers 
wrangle about leital points, the Judge decides 
thereon, and the scene Is very realistic all 
through.

Tbat popular exponent of uiodern comedy, 
Mr. Boland Beed, is In bis last week, pie- 
aentlng his successful play, " The Woman 
Hater," from the pen of tbe late David L. Lloyd 
This play has proven one of tbe successes 
of modern comedy triumphs, and Its great 
bit here on Mr. Beed's last sppesrance la still 
rembered by theatre-goers. Since that time It 
has gone the rounds of tbe theatrical circuits 
wltb but one grand result : "crowded bouses"

tress, in which she announces that she is 
en"aged to marrv Antonio de Navarro, 
the son of Jose F. de N varro. of New 
York." So Mary admits the press alle-

day at dinner that une of the boj's went 
out to the proprietor in the office and 
asked for "a quarter to get something to

PROFESSIONAL PICKINGS. 



The advance -sale of seats for the first 
week of the Abbey-Grau opera pves 
promise of a season equal in brilliancy 
to any Patti ever played here. 

Fred Bert, to whose vim and energy 
we owe the erection of our Grand Opera 
House, will be with us iigain temporarily 
in the Spring. He comes in the interest 
of James Heme, who will play an en- 
gagement at the Alcazar. 

"Held By the Enemy" will play over 
the Maguire ciriviit in Montana and Ore- 
gon eii route to this city. It will be seen 
at the California early in the Summer. 

After "Wicked London" at the Alcazar 
comes "Drink." A natural sequence. 

W. S. Cleveland's Magnificent Min- 
strels, ttiat follows Maggie Mitchell at 
the Bush Street Theatre, includes the 
famous .laps. Sweatnam, Rice, Dougher- 
ty and other bright, lights of song, hum- 
or and minstrelsy. Their opening date 
is March Srd. 

Marcus Mayer has gone on ahead to 
look out for the Abbey-Grau nights at 
Denver and Eastward. Jay Rial will 
succeed him in managing the business 
of tnc Patti-Tamagno .-season at the Grand 
Opera House. Another case of the right 
man in the right place. The regular peo- 
ple in the front of the house will be re- 
tained, which insures prompt and effi- 
cient attendance to its patrons. 

Rice's "Beautiful Evangeline" opens 
at the California Theatre March 31st. 

Thos. A. Sweeney, manager of " A 
I'ossible Case" (.'o., will return to this 
coast next season with another company 
under J. M. Hill's control with a reper- 
tory of plays. 

March .trd will be the first night of 
("levcland's Magnificent Minstrels at the 
Hush, "A Hole in the Ground" Company 
at the California, and "A Tin Soldier" 
ditto at tiie Alcazar. 

May De Mar joins Roland Reed's com- 
pany on its leaving this city to play the 
part of Alice in "The Woman Hater," 
replacing Ruth Carpenter, who returns 
East in consequence of the illness of her 
mother. 

Maggie Mitchell, the greatest of emo- 
tional actresses, and her excellent com- 
pany will make an extended tour of the 
Pacific Coast under the management of 
M. B. Leavitt, her season commencing 
at Omaha on Monday, 

Nick Roberts' "Humpty - Dumpty" 
scenes and properties were lately seized 
by a (jalveston, Texas, Sheriff at the in- 
stance of a railroad company which 
sought to recover $.371 for unpaid fares. 

The New York Truth says: "Chas. H. 
Drew has resigned from " The Brass 
Monkey" Co. to sing in "The Gondol- 
iers," his place being taken by George 
Marion, ol Dockstader fame." Marion 
is one of that veteran San Francisco lire- 
man's sons, the late Sam Marion, and 
will be remembered as the stage manager 
ami comedian of ihe Vienna Garden in 
this city several years ago. 

Nat Goodwin chronicled a hit at the 
Tremont. Boston, at the first perform- 
ance of Steele Mackaye'o new comedv, 
"Col. Tom." 

Delos King, a well known actor, died 
recently at his home at Wordsworth, O.' 
of pneumonia. 

Edward Harrigan has bongbt a plot of 
ground on Tnirty-Hfth street, near 6th 
avenue. New York, and will build a the- 
atre upon it. 

Charles Bowser's "Cheek" company is 
back again from the road laying oU' in 
Gotham. 

Maggie Mitchell, acknowledged every- 
where as the greatest emotional actress 
of pure, domestic life heroines on the 
stage, will follow the California opera 
season at the Bush Street Tiifatre on 
February 17th, supported l.y Mr. Chas. 
Abbott and her own efficient company, 
in a repertory of "Ray," a co.nedy 
drama; her latest and greatest success, 
"Fanchon, the Cricket," and " Little 
Barefoot." 

Amena Summerville returned from 
Europe during the jiast weak. 

Mary Anderson to be married. A 
press dispatch from London, yesterday, 
says: "y. iry Anderson has written a let- 
ter to Wil'-' in Black, the famous novel- 
ist, wlio i. .n intimate friend of the ac- 
tress, in which she announces that she is 
engaged to marry Antonio de Navarro, 
the son of Jose F. de N .varro, of New 
Yorr." So Mary adndts the press alle- 
•atioii and cents the allegator. It is 
veil. She - shown her good sense in 
■iccepting the man of her heart's choice, 
and a countryman, in place of taking up 
with some titled worthless scamp for a 



Cleveland's Magnificent Minstrels come 
to us via. the Southern route. They 
show the week of the 17th at the Grand 
Opera House. Los Angeles. 

All engagements for the Alcazar stock 
season closes March 2nd. Afterwards 
the theatre will be devoted to combin- 
ations. The first will be "A Tin Soldier

to secure a series of attractions to follow 
those already booked. 

George Osbourne will be the stage 
inanaKcr of the cosmopolitan entertain- 
ment at the Grand Opera House for the 
Press Club benefit on Friday afternoon.

nient for J. M. Hill's new piece, ''The 
Stepping Stone," to be produced m New

Ohio R. R., died of his injuries. 

E. J. Buckley will show his inspiration- 
tional powers in the impassioned oration 
of Mark Anton v over the dead body of 
Caisar at the Press Club entertainment 
on Friday afternoon. 

Simultaneous with the telegraphic an- 
nouncement from London that Barnum's 
Great Show will clear, in round num- 
bees, the sum of $50,000 in its London 
season, and that it would embark for 
New York on the 20th inst., comes a dis- 
patch from Philadelphia announcing the 
consummation of the sale of Fore- 
paugh's circus and menagerie to an En- 
glish svndicate for $1,800,000. Negotia- 
tions for the sa e were pending before 
Adam Forepaugh's death, and were 
probably postponed on account of his 
sickness. It is the intent of the syndi- 
cate to take the entire establishment, 
with a company of first-class American 
performers, to England, boom it a la 
Bariium as a great American show, and 
exhibit it throughout the principal cities 
of Great Britain. 

Mary Anderson's coming husband. An.

PROFESSIONAL PICKINGS. 



The advance sale of scats for the first 
week of the Abbey-Orau opera Rives 
promise of a season equal in brilliancy 
to any Patti ever played here. 

Fred Bert, to whose vim and energy 
we owe the erection of our Grand Opera 
House will be with usngain temporarily 
in tlie Spring. He tomes in the interest 
of James Heme, who wUl play an en- 
gagement at the Alcazar, 

"Held By the Enemy" will play over 
the Maguire circuit in Montana and Ore- 
gon en route to this city. It will be seen 
at the California early in tlie Summer. 

After "Wicked London" at the Alcazar 
comes "Drink." A natural sequence. 

W. S. Cleveland's Magnitict.nl Win 
strels, tbat follows Maggie Mitchell at 
the Bu.sh Street Theatre, includes the 
famous .iai)S. Sweatnani, Rice, Duugher- 
ty and other bright ligliis of song, hu- 
mor and minstrelsy. .Their opening date 
is March 3rd. 

Marcus Mayer will go on ahead to 
jook out for the Abbey-Grau nigbts at 
Denver and Eastward. Jay Rial will 
succeed h m in managing the business 
of tie Patti-Tamagno season at the Grand 
Opera Hou>^e. Another case of the right 
man in the right place. The regular peo- 
ple in the front of the house will be re- 
tained, which insures pn.inpt and effi- 
cient atienilance to its patrons. 

Thos. A. Sweeney, manager of " A 
Possible Case" Co., will return to this 
coast next season with another company 
under J. M. Hill's control with a reper- 
tory of plays. 

March 3rd will be the first night of 
Cleveland's Magnificent Minstrels at the 
Bush, "A Hole in the Ground" Company 
at the Calif, rnia, and "A Tin Soldier" 
ditto at the Alcazar. 

May De Mar joins Roland Reed's com- 
pany on iU leaving this city to play the 
part of Alice in "The Woman Hater," 
replacing Ruth Carpenter, who returns 
East in consequence of the illness of her 
mother. 

Maggie Mitchell, the greatest of emo- 
tional actresses, and her excellent com- 
pany will make an extended tour of the 
Pacitic Coast under the management of 
M. B. Leaviit. her season commencing 
at Omaha on Monday, 

Nick Roberts' "Humpty - Dumpty" 
scenes and properties were lately seized 
by a Galveston, Texas, Shej-itf at the in- 
stance of a railroad company which 
sought to recover |:i71 for unpaid fares. 

The New Yor,i Truth says: "Chas. H. 
Drew has resigned from " The Brass 
Monkey" Co. to sing in "The Gondol- 
iers,'' his Diace bring taken by George 
Marion, oi Dciksiader fame." Marion 
is one of that v.-teran San Francisco lire- 
man's son", the late Sam Marion, and 
will be rememberid asthestuge manaeer 
ami comediun of the Vienna Garden in 
this city several years ago. 

E'lward Harrifran has bought a plot of 
ground on Tnirty-tiflh street, near 6th 
avenue. New Yort, and will build a the- 
atre upon it. 

Maggie Mitchell, acknowledged every- 
where as the greatest emotional actress 
of pure, domestic lile heroines on the 
stage, will follow the California opera 
sea>on at the Bush Street Theatre on 
February 17th, supponed by Mr. Chas. 
Abbott and her own ell'icieut company, 
in a repertory of "Kay,"' a co.iie(ly 
drama; her latest and greatest success, 
"Fanchon, the Cricket," and " Little 
Barefoot." 

The telegraph tells us of the death of 
the favorite, but wayward daughter ot 
Singer, the sewing machine inventor, 
Alice M. Lagrove, at Brooklyn, on the 
the 3rd inst., of heart failure. When 
but 18 years old she was a prominent 
Bensatioii in Parisian society. She was 
shortly afterwards married to W A. P. 
Lagrove, nearly doubl* her age, at the 
almost command of her lather. Separ- 
ation and divorce followed. Not long 
afterwards she developed a i>assion for 
the sta.e. hired her own C')mpany and 
went starrinsr about the country. She 
played under the name if Agnes Leon 
ard, and ihe only success achieved dur- 
ing he. lour, it IS said, was won by her 
mai-'iiificeni costumes. She soon }!ave 
up acinar. Having become infatuated 
with B ,-s, the nctor, she was married 
to liim by Henfy Ward Beecher. The 
honeymoon was dramatically brief, for 
early" the next day Mrs. Bangs left for 
he home i i Brooklyn. A few months 
later procoedings were instituted by Mrs. 
Bangs : judgment by default was 
given hei, as Bangs tailed to put in an 
answer. The deceased leaves, aside from 
Kpr larop psIalR Ktnirp. oiistiimes Rnrt 



Cleveland's Magnificent Minstrels conn- 
to us via. the Southern route. They 
show the week of the nth at the Grand 
Opera House. Los Angeles. 

All engagements for the Alcazar stock 
5e?son closes March 2nd. Afterwards 
the theatre will be devoted to combin- 
ations. The first will be "A Tin Soldier" 
Co. on the 3rd. Manager Stockwell will 
go East at the close of the stock season 
to secure a series of attractions to follow 
those already hooked. 

George Osbourne will be the stage 
nianaeer of the cosmopolitan entertain- 
ment at the Grand Opera House for the 
Press Club benefit on Friday afternoon. 

Gone East: E. J. Henley, Chas. Dick- 
son and Kate Oesterle, all under engrge- 
ment for J. M. Hill's new piece, "The 
Stcj;ping Stone," to be produced in New 
York. 

William Dell, one of the unfortunates 
in the accident that befell the " Karl 
Gardner" Co. on the Chesapeake and 
Ohio R. R., died of his injuries. 

E. J. Buckley will show his insoiration- 
tional powers in the impassioned oration 
of Mark Antonv over the dead body of 
Ciesar at the Press Club entertainment 
on Friday afternoon. 

Simultaneous with the telegraphic an- 
nouncement from London that Barnum's 
Great Show will clear, in round num- 
bees, the sum of f50,000 in its London 
season, and that it would embark for 
New York on the 20lh inst., comes a dis- 
patch from Philadelphia announcing the 
consummation of the sale of Fore- 
paugh's circus and menaeerie to an En- 
glish syndicate for ?1,800,000. Negotia- 
tions for the sa e were pending before 
Adam Forepaugh's death, and were 
probably postponed on account of his 
sickness. It is the intent of the syndi- 
cate to take the entire establishment, 
with a company of first-class American 
performers, to England, boom it a la 
Banuini as a great American show, and 
exhibit it throughout the principal cities 
of Great Britain. 

Mary Anderson's cominghusband. An. 
tonio de Navarro, is the son of Jose F. 
de Navarro, tlie wealthv Spanish-Amer- 
ican of New York, and owner of the 
magnificent "Spanish flats" in Fifty- 
eighth and Forty-ninth streets, the Cor- 
dova, Madrid. Li lon,Grenada and other 
buildings in th.it city. Antonio de Na- 
varro is about 30 years of a<;e, of niedium 
height, rather slen.ler of build, and his 
hair and small moustache are black. 
His eyes are black, too, and he gives one 
the impression of a serious student. He 
is a pariner with his father and brother- 
in-law in the real estate business, and is 
already a m llionaire in his own right. 
He ha-> long been on intimate terms with 
Miss Anderson, as are all his family, and 
is seeking her company in Europe on the 
plea of traveling ioT his health. It is a 
love match in reality. 

The foUowingcablegram, telling of the 
continued triumph of the San Francisco 
prima donna in Paris, was received by 
the Bohemian Club from M. Massenet, 
the composer ot 'Esclarmonde" :

A New York paper says that H. B. 
Conway has asked for a release from liis 
enpaReinent to Da iel Frohnian because 
be doe 'lit like America. America will 
go into moiirnini; wiien Mr. Conwajr re- 
turns to England. 

Isabella Campbell, of one of Augustin 
Daly's traveling companies, lately em- 
ployed an expressman to convey a wick- 
er hamper containing her wardrobe and 
jewelry to the liosion dep )t. X'pon her 
arrival in B )ston her haiiiiier was miss- 
ing and she returned to New York anil 
by the aid of detectives the expre^^s^lan

fessed Ins crime and pave up a portion 
of the property valu.'d at ?1,000, but he 
bad pawned the jewels.

luminate the sm .keof Pittsburg Feb. 17. 

Charles A. Stevenson. Kate Claxton's 
busband, will ret re from the stage and 
go into trade. Mr. Stevenson ought to

Mine. Modjeska sprained her ankle 
badly while playing Lady Macbeth on

Bootii-Mo(lj(8ka engagement at Phila- 
delphia lor tliis week lias l)epn canceled 
in coiisequeiice oi tnc itnpossibility of 
her appearing in public. 

The Olympia, which Bamum & Bailey 
propose to erect in Chicago, will occupy 
a site large t iioiigh for a stage 400 feel in 
width and an auditorium sealing 10,000 
persons. The hnildins: will be on the 
West side, near Eighty-Sixth street. 

It costs something to run some opera 
companies. The expenses of the Patti 
Tamagno Company, for which Messrs. 
Abbey and Grauare personally responsi- 
ble, are J37,000 per week. With the 
e'ghty jier cent of the gross receipts, 
which in Ch cago re iched $241,000. the 
profits amounted to $11,000 per week for 
the enterpris.ng managers, who need 
such returns in order to leimburse them 
for the loss of lime, traveling and ven- 
tures tbey take in some of the lesser 
cities. 

Dockstader's Theatre, the late minstrel 
theatre of New York, reopened on the 
3rd inst. as "The Gaiety," with Colonel 
Milliken's new play, "Only Three 
Dttugli.ters," under W. E. Prescott's man- 
agement. 

A report is cnrrent that Pauline Hall 
Is once more to become a' bride. 

Arthur Leclerque, manager of James 
O'Neil's "Monte Cristo" ('o., died lately 
at Fort Hamilton, aged 48 years. 

Manager John McCaull will not dis- 
band his comic opera company, but will 
prohaldy play a Summer season at the 
Fifth Avenue Theatre, New York. 

"Held By the Enemy" will play over 
the Magiiire cironit in Montana and Ore- 
gon e.i route to ibis city. It will be seen 
dt tlie Califurnia early in the Summer. 

W. S. Cleveland'.s Magnificent Min- 
strels, tliat follows Maggie Mitchell at 
the Bush Street Theatn-. includes the 
famous Japs. Sweatnam. Kice, Dougljer- 
ty and other bright Jigi.is of song, hu- 
mor and minstrelsy. ^.Thuir openingdaie 
is March 3rd. 

Marcus Mayer will go on ahead to 
look out for the Abbey-Cirau nights at 
Denver and Eastward. Jay Rial will 
•ucceed h'm in uianaL-ing the business 
of Ine Patti-Taniagno sea <on at the Grand 
Opera House. Another case of the right 
man in the right place. The regular peo- 
j)le in the front of the house will be re- 
tained, which insures prompt and effi- 
cient attendance to it.s patrons. 

March 3rd will be ih- first niiht of 
Cleveland's Magnificent Minstrels at the 
Bush, "A Hole in the Ground" Company 
at the Calif rnia. and "A Tin Soldier" 
ilitto at tue Alcazar. 

Maggie Mitchell, acknowledged every- 
where as the greatest emotional actress 
of pure, domestic life heroines on the 
stage, will follow the California opera 
sca>oii at the Bush Street Tlieatre on I 
February 17th. supponcd by Mr. Cbas. 
Abbott a"d her own efticieiit company, 
in a repertory of "Kay,"' a co uetfy 
drama; lier latest and greatest success, 
"Fain !ui the Cricket," and " Liitie 
Barefoot."' 

The staging, costumes — and even the 
figu.-antes within them of "Said Pasha" 
are i.^ elegant accord. 

Maggie ' -hell, the greatest of emo- 
tional actre:^ses, and her excellent com- 
pany will make an extenitcd tour of the 



The following bookings for John 
Maguire's Montana circuit for the present 
season show an extensive rei>ertory of 
attractions: Frank Mayo, Vcrnona Jar- 
beau, John S. Murphy, Goodyear's Min- 
strels, "Ti'e Great Metropolis." Magsie 
Mi'.chell, Sol Smith Russell, the Augus- 
tiii Daly Company, "A Tin Soldier." 
"Paul Kauvar." Casino Opera Comoanv, 
Pat Rooiiev. Hallen & Hart. "Held by 
the Enemy," Hermann's Vaurlev lie Co., 
A. M. Palmer's Company, Louise Poiii- 
eroy. Mason Mitchell, "The Stowaway," 
Thomas Keene, Cleveland's M nstrels, 
Marie Wainwright, B.ll Nye and Nat 
Goodwin; with every week adding to 
the list. Manager Magnire has an ex- 
tensive and rapidly growing ci-cuit, and 
' plays several attractions at the same 
time on it without their c iiflicling with 
each other. The Grismers and Fred 
Warde plaved fine engagemei'ts over his 
circuit in "stormy January (thousrh not 
so stormy there as in California), and 
John S. Murphy and other attractions 
are moving over it now. 

This is the American cast of Gilbert & 
Sulliuan's "Gondoliers," known as the 
" American Gondoliers.'" that com- 
menced Its new season at Brooklyn Feb. 
3rd: The Duke, Signor Brocolini ; Luiz, 
Mr. Murphy; the Grand Inquisitor, Mr. 
George Lauri; Marco Paimiero, Mr. 
Harry Hilliard; Giuseppe Paimiero, Mr.

etta. Miss Marion Manola; Tesca, Miss 
Celia E.lis; Fiametta, Miss Remsen; 
Viitoria, Miss Cole; Inez, Miss Irwin; 
Men at-Arms. HeraULs, Pages. Our ex- 
changes say that the new company bring 
out tiie points^nd give life and .spirit to 
the perlormance that the English com- 
pany sent over bv D'Oyle Carte were 
hopelessly incapable of doing, and were 
recalled, it will be remembered, to save 
the opera from utter rout. 

Oscar Hammerstein has borrowed 
$.300,000 on is elegant New Harlem Op- 
era House Block. 

The gossips were all thrown into a 
flutter last week bv the announcement 
of the marriage of Blakely Hall, the 
well known newspaperci.rrespondent, to 
Mrs. Helen A. Jolines, who is vaguely 
descr.bed in several publications as a 
niece of Senator Conger, and at one time 
connected with the stage. Under such 
a description as this one could hardly 
recognize that exceedingly bright and 
pretty little actress. Helen Slandish. who 
was recently a member of Rosina V kes' 
c- mpany. Th s niarringe is very fit and 
very happy. The bride is bright, pretty 
and accon'iiilished, and the groom is 
able, handsome a';d popular. Their 
union illustrates the affinity between tne 
stage and tlie press. 

S.nce Mary Anderson has made public 
the avowal of her matrimonial engage- 
ment, Messrs. Abbey, Schoelfel & Grau 
have instructed their lawyers to write to 
her about the unexpired contract they 
have, binding her to commence a twenty 
weeks' dramatic season in America in 
December next. They claim to have 
lost $3j,000 by her illness, and the can- 
celing of datesconiracted for. They also 
allege that Miss Anderson is now in good 
health, capable of keeping her engage- 
ments with them, and is acting in bad 
faith towards them. Kt ally, • Our Mary" 
is in a quandary. If she bi;eaks her the- 
atrical engagement she will be sued for 
breach of contract, and if she breaks 
her matrimonial one she will be sued for 
breach of promise. Between the two 
breaches she is blockaded; and it will 
take a legal cyclone or a court rotary 
plow of great' power to extricate her 
from her tied-up position. 

The famous Strauss Orchestra of Vi- 
enna, number. ng fifty pieces, will arrive 
in the United States some time during 
the month of May nex', and make a tour 
of the country. Ii will be led bv the 
yonnucr meniSer of the lamily, Edward 
Strauss. Ilof-Bal Musik-Director of the 
Emperor and Court of Au.striaat Vienna.

PROFESSIONAL PICKINGS. 



Maggie Mitchell opcn» her two-wecU.s 
engageiiieiit at the New Bush Street 
Theatre next week in her new play of 
"Ray," a domestic story of New Kiifjland 
life, in wliicli tins fre'at emotional ac- 
tress has achieTCd siicli a success in the 
Eastern cities. For cast and synopsis 
see (-pecial programme announcement 
elsewhere in Figaro. There will be no 
Bundny night performances at the Hush 
during Maggie Mitcliell's engagement. 

The dramatic season at the (iraud Op- 
era House follows the Abbey-Grau opera 
one, opening on Sunday evening. March 
2nd witli Augustin Daly's traveling com- 
pany in hiscomedy of "Araliian Nights." 
The second production will be "A Night 
Off'." 

Having to make dates at Portland by 
steamer the "Slienandoah" Co. will be 
forced to close their season at the Bald- 
win on Friday night ne.it. The farewell 
matinee will be given on Friday. 

The Press Club entertainment at the 
Grand this afternoon was largely attend- 
ed. 

One of the outre things in the shop- 
windows in New York at present is the 
double-headed museum freak souvenir 
of "The Seven Ages." It is a common 

flaster of Paris bust with Mr. Henry K. 
)ixey's face on one side and Mr. Wlfiam 
Shakespeare's on the other. Dixey's face 
looks very much like Charley Frohman's 
ami the immortiil bard looks like the 
Kev. Joseph Howard, Jr. 

W. W. Randall says that Miss Delia 
Fox will appear in the De Wolf Hopper 
Company next season, the report to the 
contrary notwithstanding. 

"Kajai\ka" is said to have lost $4,000 
daring its New York run. 

(ieorge Washington Lederer is seen 
every evening at one or the other of the 
New York theatres with his pretty wife, 
for whom he made such a gallant fight. 

Four dudes took a box at Niblo's Oar- 
den, N. Y.. to see "Bluebeard, Jr.," and 
during the second act spoke disrespect- 
fudy to Alice Johnson and Topsy Ven. 
who stood quite near the box, and close 
to Frank Bair. who plays the title role, 
Mr. Blair in a very audible undertone 
whispered to them to leave the box, or 
be would jump in it. In less than sixty 
■econds the box was empty. 

Richard Maii.>tfield is now plaving un- 
der the management of T. Henry French. 

Thos. W. Keene follows "A Midnight 
Bell at the New York Fourteenth Street 
Theatre, Feb. 17th. 

Edwin Boolh and Lawrence Barrett 
are to begin their tliird joint starring 
tour early in Oclcber next — Barrett's 
health permitting. 

It is statiU that Marie Prescott will 
shortly be seen in New York at the Fifth 
Avenue Theatre in a new version of 
"Cleopatra." 

Billy Birch is trying to reorganize the 
San Francisco Minstrels with Frank 
Moran, Add Kynian and the Only Leon 
in the company. 

"Aunt Jack" promises to run the sea- 
son out at the Madison Square Theatre, 
N. Y. The same can be said of "The 
Charity Ball" at the Lyceum. 

Lawrence Barrett is expected to return 
from Europe May Ist, when he will be- 
gin active preparations for his next 
season's tour with Edwin Booth. 

R. D. McLean, who recently purchased 
"Spartacus. the Gladiator.' from J. H. 
Mack, is making arrangements to pro- 
duce that play in the near future. 

After "Wicked London" at the Alcazar 
comes "Drink." A natural sequence. 

Rehearsals of "The Pembertons," the 
new play in which Miss Edsall, Manager 
J. M. Hill's new star will appear, sire go- 
ing on most satisfactorily at the N. Y. 
Union Square Theatre. 

Mr. and Mrs. Kendal's reappear:ince 
in New York at Palmer's Theatre, Feb. 
17th, will be marked bv the first produc- 
tion in this country of Pinero's new 
play, "The Weaker Sex." 

Marcl. -d will be th-> first ni-ht of 
Cleveland's Magnificent Minstrels at the 
Bush, "A Hole in the Ground" Companv 
at the California, and "A Tin Soldier^' 
ditn at ttie Alcaiar. 

Managi . M. Hill has engaged Nellie 
Bly t* give three lectures descriptive of 
her tour around the world at the N. Y. 
Union Square Theatre, Feb. 9tti, 16th

George T. Krewolf, the treasurer of 
Hoyt & Thomas' "Brass Monkey" Co., 
who skipped away with the sack con- 
taining near J2,000 at Boston, last April, 
was arrested in New York yesterday on 
the arrival of the steamship (-o'on, from 
Aspinwall, charged with embezzlement. 
He was tr.iced to this city, and from 
here he went to Panama; not, as many 
supposed, to take on his hands the fin- 
ishing of the Panama Canal, for the San 
Francisco gamblers won all his stolen 
wealth before he left. His money was 
gone, and he looked more like a tramp 
than the da'fhing swell he used to be. 

A London cablegram of the 13th states 
that Mary Anderson will contest Abbey's 
suit for damajres. if he should bring any, 
for indemni y for the loss he may have 
sustained by her illness or breach of con- 
tract, and that she will not appear upon 
the stace for an indefinite time. 

Louis Aldrich's new play, "The Ed- 
itor " will be produced April 17th. We 
are afraid A drich wUl be a "heavy" 
e iitor. 

Colonel Milliken Bey, whose firstname 
was lost on the battlefield in Egypt, has 
a new farce comedy, called "Three Only 
Daughters," which is promised at Dock- 
stailer's Theatie, N. Y., Feb. 15th. 

Henry Pi'ttitt promises to visit New 
York next Spring to rehearse his new 
play, ' London, Day l)y Day." 

"The Burglar" is one of the very few 
plays brought out ihis season that has 
been successful from the siart. It has 
done a steady and large business in the 
West, and is now in Boston, where the 
prett ■ p!ay is given this week. Messrs. 
MatiI.ews and Smyili, the clever young 
managers, have so far made a profit of 
J24.000 on ihis charming story so neatly 
told by their excellent company. 

The successes of the season so far can 
he counted on tiie fingers of one hand 
wiihout using the thumb. 

Bertha Ricci is going to get a divorce 
from herliusband, Mr. Jefferson George, 
and return to the comic opera stage. 

At the end of the present season Sam 
W. Fort will sever his connection with 
the Holiday Street Theatre. Baltimore- 
10 mana;;e Lotta. John W. Albaugh- 
Jr., will assume the management of the 
House, 

Richard Golden has bought a home- 
stead in hi? native town, Bucksport, Me., 
from his profits on "O.d Jed Prouty." 

Miss St. John (Singen. with the accent 
on the sin) gets £100 a week, Mr. Lonnen 
gets £50 and Mr. Danby £40. 

Francis Wilson neither wanted the 
Duke nor the Inquisitor in his produc- 
tion of "The Gondoliers" at Philade'- 
phia, March 3d. He has a very level 
head and saw that the only part with 
possibilities is the .second Gondolier. 

" On Tuesday last," says Dunlop's 
Stage News, 'the usual pay-day at the 

Theatre, there was a small bank 

panic in New York. The Sixth National 
Bank, the Equitable and Lenox Banks 
had all closed their doors on Tuesday 
morning, and during the performance in 
the evening the stage manager informed 
the company that Edward Elusive would 
like to see them after the performance. 
When every membfr of the company 
stood in a half-circle around, the man- 
ager addressed them as follows: ' Ladies 
and gentlemen ! Owing to the failure of 
the bunk, I regret to say I am unable to 
pay salaries to-night. Some other night. 
Goodnight.' Every member of the com- 
pany knew that he had no bank account 
eiiher in the Sixth National or any other 
bank, but the nerve of the thing was so 
gigan ic that the few who gave him the 
dead face ' were laughed down, and the 
company dispersed as gaily as if each 
one had a week's pay safely in pocket." 

At the New York Casino "The Bri- 
gands" is bowling along towares its 300th 
representation, which will be reached 
Friday evening, Feb. 21st, and is to be 
appropriately celebrated. This is the 
second of the Casino operas to attain 
that number of performances, and if its 
present remunerative business continues 
the number will be considerably increas- 
ed before the piece is withdrawn. "Er- 
miiiie" was the first to make this record 
and its long and successful career is 
famdiar to all. "The Brigands" holds 
its own, the average for the first 275 per- 
formances being a fraction over $917.

March lOtli. for a season of three weeks, 
during which thev will be .seen in a 
special and handsome revival of "The 
Heir-at-Law." 

Maggie Mitchell, acknowledged every- 
where as the greatest emotional actress 
of pure, domestic life heroines on the 
stage, will follow the California opera 
sea-on at the Bush Street Theatre on 
February 17th, supponed by Mr. Cbas. 
Abbott and her own efficient company, 
in a repertory of "Kay,"' a co nedy 
drama; her latest and greatest success, 
"Fanchon, the Cricket," and " Little 
Barefoot." 

Ullie Akerstrom is presenting " An- 
nette, the Dancing Girl," in St. Louis for 
the first time this week. Next Monday 
the iiimble little actress will be seen in 
Toledo, followed by engagements in 
Jersey City and Brooklyn. 

It costs something to run some opera 
companies. The expenses of the Patti 
Tamagno Company, for which Messrs. 
Abbey and Grauare personally responsi- 
ble, are $37,000 per week. W.th the 
e'ghty per cent of the gross receipts, 
which in Ch cago re ched $244,000. the 
profits amounted to $11,000 per week for 
the enterpris.ng managers, who need 
such returns in order to leimburse them 
for the loss of time, traveling and ven-

that 9(_M"';. Edsall. It is by Riminosky 
ilie well kni.wn f rtist. In size it is 20x 
34 inclus, in five tints on bmwn back- 
ground, and is as riking likeness ot the 
young ac tress. The placing of Miss Kd- 
sall before the jniblic in a new play, 
"The Pembertons," is the most am- 
b tious effort oi Mr. Hill's managerial 
career, and his protege w.ll have the ad- 
vantage of surroundings — company, 
scenery, etc., etc. — su h as seldom falls 
to the lit of any actress. 

The Otfenbac i revival, which began 
■with "The Brigands" at the New York 
Casino, will be continued with " The 
Grand Duchess." Shades of Hortence 
Schneider and reminiscences of /udic, 
not 10 nieniion Theo, Aimee and Alice 
Oates, hi'W the flight from the latino of 
Miss Maiie HhUoii must be regreited.

One of tlie outre things in the shop-

of •' Tne Si'vcn Ages." It is a common 

?!aster ol Par.s l>ust with Mr. Henry K. 
)ixey's lace i>n one sid' and Mr. W ifiam 
Shakespeare'- on ihe other. Dixey's lace 
looks veryimuh like Charley Fr>diman's 
and the iminortiil bard looks like the 
Rev. Joseph Howard, Jr. 

W. W. Riindall says that Miss Delia 
Fox will appear in the De Woll Hopper 
Comiiany nextsea.son, tne report to the 
contrary no;with>tanding.

Miss Minnie P.dmer contemplates a 
series of matinees of "My Brother's Sis- 
ter" at a London West-end theatre. 
Then she goes to tfie Grand, where she 
will be seen in "My Sweetheart," after 
which she will commence her provincial 
tour. When Miss Palmer has fultilled 
her provincial, and returns from her 
American tours under the management 
of W. W. Randall, she will, it is rumor- 
ed, reaiipear in London in comic opera 
The little ladv would do well in that 
line, and it is to be hoped that rumor 
speaks truly this time. 

"His Natural Life" ended at Toronto 
last week. The manager fired the crowd 
out of his theatre and closed the house. 
No salaries. 

Sara Bernhardt has begun the study 
of Romeo in English, and may play it to 
I Miss Margaret Mather's Juliet in Amer- 
I ica next season.

"Castles in the Air," in which he and 
his own companv are to appear Mav otii, 
at the Broadwav Theatre. New York. 
The preparations for the production of 
the opera are going on with great effect, 
and it is expected that the De Wolf Hop- 
per Opera BouHe Company will achieve 
success at once. 

Seymour He.'is, a son of the well known 
and much liked New York politician, 
Jacob Hess, is to make his debut on the 
stage in the De Wolf Hopp.r 0|)*-a Co. 

An English syndicate has been formed 
to establish a circuit of theatres in En- 
gland, similar to the circuits, in this 
country. They intend to use American 
plays, 

George T. Krewolf, the treasurer of 
Iloyt & Thomas' "Brass Monkey" Co,, 
who skipped away with the sack con" 
jaining near $2,000 at Boston, last April, 
was arrested in New York yesterday on 
tiie arrival of the steamship Co on, from 
Aspinwall, charged with embezzlement. 
He was traced to this city, and from 
here he went to Panama; not, as many 
SU' posed, to take on his hands the fin- 
ishing of the Panama Canal, for the San 
Francisco gamblers won ali his stolen 
wealth before he leit. His money was 
gone, and he looked more like a tiamp 
than the dashing swell he used to be. 

A London cablegram of the 13th states 
that Mary Anderson will contest Abbey's 
suit for damages, if he should bringany, 
for indemni y for the loss he may have 
sustained by her illness or breach of con- 
tract, and that she will not appear upon 
the stage for an indetinite time. 

Louis Aldrich's new play, "The Ed- 
itor," will be produced April 17th. We 
are afraid A.drich will be a "heavy" 
e litor. 

Colonel Mllliken Bey, whose firstname 
was lost on the battlefield in Egypt, has 
a new farce-comedy, called "Three Only 
Daughters," whi^h is promised at Dock- 
staiier's Theatre, N. Y., Feb. loth. 

Henry Pettitt promises to visit New 
York next Spring to rehearse his new 
play, ' London, Day by Day." 

"The Burglar" is one of the very few 
plays brought out this season that has 
been successful from the sart. It has 
done a steady and large b'siness in the 
West, and is "now in Boston, where the 
pri-tt • p ay is given tlii- week. Messrs. 
Matibews and Smyrh, the clever young 
managers, have so far made a profit of 
$24. OCX) on Ills charming story so neatly 
told t)y their excellent company. 

The successes of the season so far can 
be counted on the fingers of one hand 
wi'hout using the thumb. 

Bertha Ricci is going to get a divorce 
from her husband, Mr. Jefferson George, 
and return to the comic opera stage. 

At the end of the present season S.im 
W. Fort will sever his connection with 
the Holiday Street Theatre. Baltimore' 
10 manajie Lotta. John W. Alhaugh> 
Jr., will assume the management of the 
house, 

Ricliard Mansfield is now plaving un- 
der the nianaijement of T. Henry French. 
Miss St. John (Singen. with the accent 
on the sin) gets £100 a week, Mr. Lonnen 
gets £S0 and Mr. Danby £40. 

Francis Wilson neither wanted the 
Duke nor the Inquisitor in bis produc- 
tion of "The Gondoliers" at Philade'- 
phia, March 3d. He has a very level 
iuad and saw that the only part with 
possibilities is the scjond Gondolier. 

At the N w York Ctsino "The Bri- 
gands" is bowling along towares its 300;h 
representation, which will be reached 
Friday eveninc:, Feb. 21st, and is to be 
appropriately celebrated. This is the 
sicond of the Casino operas to attain 
that number ol perf ir i aiices. and if its 
present remunerative business continues 
the number will be considerably increas- 
ed before ihe piece is withdraw'n. "Er- 
miiie" was the first to make this record 
and its long and successful career is 
lam liar to all. "The Brigands" holds 
its own, tlie average lor the hrsr 27.5 per- 
formances being a fraction over $917. 

Joseph Jefferson and W. J. Florence's 
Southern route presenting 'The Rivals" 
is, New Orleans, Feb. 17th, one week; 
Nashville, 24-25; Chattanooga, 26; At- 
lanta (Ga.), 27; Lexington (Kv.), March

Ma:cii 10th. for a season of tliree weeks, 
during which thev will be seen in a 
special and handsome revival of " The 
Iieir-at-Law." 

It costs something to run some opera 
companies. The expenses of the Patti 
Tamagno Company, for which Messrs. 
Abtiey and Grauare pe.son.il.y responsi- 
ble, me $.37,000 per week. W th the

The most perfect art lithograph ever 
issued by the Strowbridge Company is 
that of Miss Edsall. It is by Riminosky 
the well kncwn rrtist In size it is 29x 
34 inclus. in live tints on brown back- 
ground, ami is as riking likeness ot ttie 
young a-tress. The placing of Miss Ed- 
sall before the public in a new play, 
"The I'enibertona," is the most am- 
bitious effort ol Mr. Hill's managerial 
career, and his protege w.ll have tlie ad- 
vantage of surroundings — company, 
scenery, etc., etc. — su h as seldom ialls 
to the lut of any actress. 

The Offenbach revival, which began 
with "The Brigands" at the New York

Grand Duchess." Shades of Hortcnce 
Schneider and reminiscences of Judic, 
not 10 meniion Theo, Ainiee and Alice 
Oates, how the flight from the L'a<iiio of

Miss Louise Montague is to appear in 
Richard Staul's new comic opera, "The

One of the outre things in the shop- 
windows in New York at present is the 
doubie-headed museum frean souvenir 
of "The Seven Ages." It is a common 

Slaster Paris bust with Mr. Henry K. 
liiey's .<ice on one side and Mr. \V ifiam 
Shakespeare's on the other. Dixey's face 
looks very much like Charley Frohman's 
."^nd the immortal bard looks like the 
xiey. Joseph Howard, Jr. 

W. W ndall says that Miss Delia 
Fox will appear in the De Woll Hopper 
Company next season, ttie report to the 



Miss Minnie Palmer contemplates a 
series of matinees of "My Brother's Sis- 
ter" at a London West-end theatre. 
Then she goes to the Grand, where she 
will be seen in "My Sweetheart," after 
which she will commence her provincial 
tour. When Miss Palmer has fullilled 
her provincial, and returns from her 
American tours under the management 
of W. W. Randall, she will, it is rumor 
ed, reappear in London in comic opera 
The little ladv would do well in that 
line, and it is to be hoped that rumor 
speaks truly this time. 

"His Natural Life" ended at Toronto 
last week. The manager fired the crowd 
out of his theatre and closed the house. 
No salaries. 

Sara Bernhardt has begun the study 
of Romeo in English, and may play it to 
Miss Margaret Mather's Juliet in Amer- 
ica next season, 

De Wolf Hopper appeared at Baltimore 
in the McCaull Company, on the IGth, 
for the first time in tbe new comic opera, 
"Castles in the Air," in which he and 
his own companv are to appear Mav oth, 
at the Broadwav Theatre. New York. 
The preparations for the production of 
the opera are going on with great eflect, 
and it is expected that the De \V olf Hop- 
per Opera Bouffe Company will achieve 
success at once. . 

Seymour Hess, a son of the well known 
and much liked New York politician, 
Jacob Hess, is to make his debut on the 
stape in the De Wolf Hopper Opera Co. 

An English syndicate has been formed 
to establi-ih a circuit of theatres in En- 
frland, similar to the circuits in ibis 
country. They intend to use American 
['lays, 

George T. Krewolf, the treasurer of 
Hoyt & Thomas' "Brass Monkey" Co,, 
who skipped away with the sack con- 
taining near |2,000 at Boston, last April, 
was arrested in New York recently on 
the arrival of the steamship Colon, from 
Aspinwall, charged with embezzlement. 
He was traced to this city, and from 
liere he went to Panama; not, as many 
su 'posed, to take on his hands the fin- 
ishing of tlie Panama Canal, for the San 
Francisco gamblers won all his stolen 
wealth before he left. His money was 
gone, and he looked more like a tramp 
than the dashing swell he used to be. 

A London cablegram of the 13th states 
that Mary Anderson will contest Abbey's 
suit for damages, if he should bringany, 
for indemni y for the loss he may have 
sustained by her illness or breach of con- 
tract, and that she will not appear upon 
the stage for an indefinite time. 

Louis Aldrich's new play, "The Ed- 
itor," will be produced A()ril 17th. We 
are afraid A.drich will be a "heavy" 
editor. 

Henry Pettitt promises to visit New 
York next Spring to rehearse his new 
play, 'London, Day l)y Day." 

"The Burglar" is one of the very few 
plays brought out this season that has 
been successful from the siart. It has 
done a steadv and large business in the 
West, and is "now in Boston, where the 
prett*- plav is given this week. Messrs. 
Matthews and Smyth, the clever young 
managers, have so far made a profit of 
.i!2 1.000 on I his charming story so neatly 
told by their excellent company. 

The successes of the season so far can 
be counted on the fingers of one hand 
wi'houl using the thumb. 

Bertha Ricci is going to get a divorce 
from her husband, Mr. Jefferson George, 
and return to the comic opera stage. 

At the end of the present season Sim 
W. Fort will sever his connection with 
the Holiday Street Theatre. Baltimore- 
to manage Lotta. John W. Alhaugh> 
Jr., will assume tbe management of tbe 
house, 

Richard Mansfield is now plaving un- 
der the management of T. Henry French. 

Francis Wilson neither wanted the 
Duke nor the Inquisitor in bis produc- 
tion of "The Gondoliers" at Philade'- 
phia, March 3d. He has a very level 
head and saw that the only part with 
possibilities is the second Gondolier. 

At the New York Casino "The Bri- 
gands" is bowling along towares its 300:h 
representation, which will be reached 
Friday evening, Feb. 2lst, and is to be 
appropriately celebrated. This is the 
sicond of the Casino operas to attain 
that number of performances, and if its 
present remunerative business continues 
the inimber will be considerably increas- 
ed before the piece is withdraw"n. "Er- 
miiiie" was the first to make ibis record 
and its long and successful career is 
fani.liar to all. "The Brigands" holds 
its own, the average for the first 275 per- 
formances being a fraction over |917.

companies. The expenses of the Patti 
Tamagno Company, for which Messrs. 
Abbey and Grauare personally responsi- 
ble, are 137,000 per week. W.th the 
e-ghty per cent ot the gross receipts, 
which in Cu cago re iched $244,000, the 
profits amounted to 111.000 per week for 
the enterprisng inanugers. who need 
such returns in order to leiiuburse them 
for the loss of time, traveling and ven- 
tures they take in some of the lesser 
cities.

Then muttered be a fearful word. 

Which Maud In tear and trembling heard. 

He hastened from tbe place away: 
They have DOt spoken since that day. 

And Miud. now of hi: loTe bereft.

"Ray," a domestic story of New England 
lite, in which this ereat emotional ac- 
tress has achieved such a success in the 
Eastern cities. Cast and synopsis in 
the Bush's programme announcement 
elsewliere in Figako. There will be no 
Sunday night perlorinances at the liusb 
dur ng Maggie Mitcliell's engagement. 

Having to make dates at Portland by 
steamer the "Siienandoah" Co. will be 
forced to close their reason at the Bald- 
win on Friday night next. The farewell 
matinee will be given on Friday. 

One of the outre things in the shop- 
windows in New York at present is the 
double-headed museum lreai< souvenir 
of "The Seven Ages." It is a rommon 
plaster of Paris bust with Mr. Henry E. 
Dixey's face on one side and Mr. AV ifiam 
Shakes; eare's on the other. Dixey's face 
looks very much like Charley Frobman's 
and lb' Ti mortal bard looks like the 
Rev. Jo. ,>h Hotvard, Jr. 

W. W. Randall says that Miss Delia 
Fox will appear in the De Woll Hopper 
Company next season, the report to the 
contrary notwithstanding.

I -Maggie Mitchell and company appear 
to-night at the Bush Street Theatre in 
her new comedy-drama of "Ray" — a rav 
of dramatic sunshine, warm, pure and 
genial, such as we have not had here for 
an indefinite period. 

The Orpheum has rednced its admis- 
sion to 10 cenis; best reserved seats, 25

Rosenfeld. 

Leadvilie. Col., is to have a new $50,- 
000 opera bouse next ripring. 

Will A. M.ick .aid Blanche Sherwood, 
of the "Keep it Dark" Co., were married 
at Minneaj)oli3 recently— and now its 
out. 

Among the stranded companies re- 
cently in Denver were Goodyear, ' ook 
Jc Dillon's Minstrels and the Miaco 
"Hunipty-Dumpty." 

Louis James recently informed the 
D.nver correspondent of the New York 
Mercury that he did not propose to in- 
stitute divorce proceedings against his 
wife, Mai ie Wainwri{,ht, although they 
had separated forever. 

Mrs. John Wood's daughter, Florence, 
is shorily to wed Ralph Lumley, the au- 
thor of "Aunt Jack." 

It is reported that John Wild will re- 
join Harrigan's company next season. 

The scenery, properties and wardrobe 
of Dockstader's Minstrels were sold re- 
cently at auction at tlieir old theatre- 
The prices realized were r diculously 
small, Commodore Tooker being the 
chief buyer. 

"His Natural Life" ended at Toronto 
last week. The manager fired the crowd 
nut of bis theatre and closed the house. 
No salaries. 

Sara Bernhardt has begun the study 
of Romeo in English, and may play it t.)

ica next season,

in the McCaull Company, on the 16th,

his own company are to appear Mav 5tli, 
at the Broadwiiy Tlieatfe. New York. 
The prep.irations for the production of 
tlie opera are going bn with great ellect, 
and it is expected that the De Wolf Hop- 
per Opera Boufle Company will achieve 
success at once. 

Seymour Hess, a son of the well known 
and much liked New York politician, 
Jacob Hess, is to make his deliut on the 
sta-ic in the De Wolf Hopp r Opera Co. 
An English syndicate has been formed 
to establish a circuit of theatres in En- \ 
gland, similar to the circuits in this 
country. They intend to use American 
plays, 

Louis .lldrich's new play, "The Ed- 
itor," will be produced April 17th. We 
are afraid A.drich will be a "heavy" 
e.litor. 

Henry Prttitt promises to visit New 
York next Spring to rehearse his new 
play, ' London, Day by Day." 

The successes of the season so far can 
be counted on the fingers of one hand 
wi'hout using the thumb. 

Bertha Ricci is going to get a divorce 
from her husband, Mr. Jeff'e'son George, 
and return to the comic opera stage. 

At the end of the present season S im

At the Nlw York Casino "The Bri- 
gands" is bowling alongtowaresits300:h 
representation, which will be reached 
Friday evening', Feb. 21st, and is to be 
appropriately celebrated. This is the 
sicond of the Casino operas to attain 
that number of perfomiances. and if its 
present remunerative business continues 
the number will be considerably increas- 
ed before the piece is withdrawn. "Er- 
miiiie" was the first to make this record 
and its long and successful career is 
fain. liar to all. "The Brigands" holds 
its own, the average for the hrst 275 per- 
formances being a fraction over |917.

Me-srs. AI Hayman and Will G. Davis 
have lea-^cd the Columbia Theatre, Chi-

opened the new and clef:ant Marquam 
Thratre, Portland, Or., which he holds 
under Contract, lor a number of ye-^rs. 
under his luanageiuent. The theatrical 
business on this coast is growing vt-ry 
rapidly, and all these manager al step- 
ping stone- on the way across the con- 
tinent, and on the reach of the coast, 
cannot but au,;ment its proporiions. 



SARA BERNHARDT IN A PAS- 
SION PLAY. 

Any one who ever witnessed the per- 
formance of poor, persecuted Salmi 
Morse's Passion Play at the Grand Opera 
House can never forget the devotional 
feelings it inspired. No play on the 
modern stage ever awakened so acutely 
the emotions of its audience, and if it 
had not been interdicted by tbe power 
of religious bigotry it would have been 
the instigator of a revival of a series of 
Scripture plays grand in their concep- 
tion, motives and effect. The world will 
return to its middle age mysteries or 
Scripture plays again, though the time 
may not be yet at hand. The wonderful 
impersonation of Sara Bernhardt's Joan 
of Arc has awakened in the grandest of 
our inspirational aciresses a religious 
enthusiasm that has before been spoken 
of. The latest Paris dispatches inform 
us that she has determined to appear 
during Easter week as the Virgin Mary 
in a Passion play modeled on the mys- 
tery plavs of the middle ages. 

\Vhen' Bernhardt was at Rome study- 
ing for Joan of Arc, the dispatch tells us, 
'She set herself to read all the w;orks 
ever writ'en relative to the Maid of Or- 
leans. The better to leel the holy en- 
thusiasm which pervades the character, 
she included in her reading the lives ot 
a number of saints whose characteristics 
had an analogy to those of the heroine 
of Doinremy. 

"The history of biblical heroines also 
claimed her attention. In the course of 
perusal of the Scriptures Mme. Bern- 
hardt was struck by tbe dramatic inter 
est of the lite of the Virgin. Why 
should not she play the character? she 
mused, and the iitea germinated." 

Bernhardt applied to M. Harancourt, 
the poet who adapted into verse Shake- 
speare's "Merchant of Venice" for the 
OJeon, to write tbe Passion play. The 
dramatist devoted weeks ot study to the 
work, resulting in a religious drama of 
1500 verses, that he admits may excite 
bitter animadversion, but hopes that 
the piece would carry in itself its own 
justilication. 

"I have not written a single line," says 
Harancourt in an interview, which can 
wound the religious sentiment ot spec- 
tators in outlining the life of the Virgin. 
The character of the son, morever, is 
strictly sacred. I hare not put into his 
mouth a single word to show that he is 
a man and not the Son of God. 

"In order to avoid misconception," 
concluded Harancourt, "I want every- 
one to recognize that the piece is a sacred 
drama, just as much as a mystery play." 
M. Porel, the manager of the Odeon, 
I'.as, it is stated, accepted this Passion 
play. M. Gamier, who accompanied 
Mme. Bernhardt to America, is to under- 
take the character of the Mess ah. Ac- 
cording to present arrangements, oniy 
turee performances are to be given. 

M*ggte Mhchell and company apneac 
this week at the Bush Street Theatre in 
her new comedy-drama of "Ray" — a rav 
of dramatic sunshine, warin, pure and 
genial, such as we have not had here for 
an indefinite period. 

The Orpheum has rednced its admis- 
sion to 10 cenis ; best reserved seats, 25 
cents, 

Helen Dauvray is to return to the 
stage next season in "The Whirlwind," 
a new play to be wr.tten by Sydney 
Rosenfeld. 

Leadvilie, Col., is to have a new $30,- 
000 opera house next Spring. 

Will A. Muck iihd Bianche Sherwood, 
of the "Keep it Dark" Co., were married

Robert Mantell opens in Chicago Feb.

daring which he will be seen in "The 
Corsican Brothers." 

The OiVtnbac. revival, which besc.nn 
with "Tl:e Brigands" at the New York

Maggie Mitchell opens her two-weeks 
engagement at the New Bush Street 
Theatre t!;is week in her new play of 
"Ray," a domestic story of New England 
life, in which this great emotional ac- 
tress has achieved such a success in the 
Eastern cities Cast and synopsis in 
the Bush's programme announcement 
elsewhere in Figaro. There will be no 
Sunday night perlormances at the Hush 
during Maggie Mitchell's engagement. 

Having to make dates at Portland by 
steamer the "Shenandoah" Co. will be 
forced to close their season at the Bald- 
win on Friday night next. The farewell 
matinee will be given on Friday. 

"His ural Life" ended at Toronto 
last week. The manager fired the crowd 
out of his theatre and closed the house. 
'Ko salaries. 

Ihe scent r/. properties and wardrobe 
of Dockst r's Minstrels were sold re- 
cently at auction at their old theatre. 
The prices realized were ridiculouslv

"Huinpty-Dumpiy." 

Sara Bernhardt has begun the study 
of Romeo in English, and may play it to 
Miss Margaret Mather's Juliet in Amer- 
ica next season. 

An English syndicate has been formed 
to establish a circuit of theatres in En- 
gland, similar to the circuits in this 
country. They intend to use American 
plays, 

Henry P.-ttitt promises to visit New- 
York next Spring to rehearse his new 
play, 'London, Day by Day." 

The successes of the season so far can 
be counted on the hngers of one hand 
without using the thumb. 

At the end of the present season Sam 
W. Fort will sever his connection with 
the Holiday Street Theatre. Baltimore> 
to manage Lotta. John W. Albaught 
Jr., will assume the management of the 
house,

At the New York Casino "The Bri- 
gands" is bowling along towares its 300:h 
representation, which will be reached 
Friday evening, Feb. 21st, and is to be 
appropriately celebrated. This is the 
second of the Casino operas to attain 
that number of performances, and if its 
present remunerative business continues 
the number will be considerably increas- 
ed before the piece is withdrawn. "Er- 
niinie" was the first to make this record 
and its long and successful career is 
faniliar to all. "The Brigands" holds 
its own, the average for the hrst 27.5 per- 
formances being a fraction over |917.

A CARD TO THE PUBLIC. 



Having purchased the above theatre, one of the oldest m 
the city, formerly known as Buckley's Original Varieties, I in- 
tand to make it one of the best places of amusement that money 
can do. I have had it thoroughly renovated, new scenery, 
plenty of light, and will make it my aim to employ none but 
the best of artists, so when you witness one performance you 
can cheerfully go out and tell your friends tnat you have seen 
one of the best and most entertaining shows in the city. My 
attachees will be Ladies and Gentlemen who will be courteous 
to all. 

I will have none but the best of wines, liquors and cigars 
to serve over my bar, and all I ask is your patronage, which I 
am sure after one evening's pleasure I shall always retain. 

I remain yours respectfully,

PROFESSIONAL PICKINGS. 

John II. Rogers, the husband of Min- 
nie Palmer, wrote to \V. VV. Randall, of 
New York, explaining; the siuldc-n col- 
lapse of "Cinderella," the costly holiday 
spectacle at Her Majesty's Theatre, L'>n- 
don. Minnie wag the Cinderella of the 
show. Mr. Rogers says that the pro- 
duction cost about $12.1,000, an 1 the loos- 
es, as represenled to liiiii, ure abont $'i'5,- 
000. The enterprise was under the dl 
rection of Henry J. Leslie who is also 
the lecsee of the 1-yrie Theatre, but it 
was backed l)V outside parties. Rogers 
Savs tliat the .show netted a protit of 
from $4,000 to $5,000 weekly, but some- 
body drew all the money and did not 
pay' the people. fOther acrodnts say 
that the spiciaclo faded ic draw alter the 
first week, and wa- plaved to a iiiu'litly 
loss,— Ed. Fioako.I Minnie -Palmer re- 
ceived $2,400 lor two week.s' work, bul 
when the show closed over $1,000 was 
still owing to her. After playing in the 
English provinces Minnie Palmer will 
return to this country. Her American 
tour opens 111 Philadelphia Oct. 6th. 

With the p.'oduciion of "The Silver 
King" next week the Alcazar stock com- 
pany season will close, aa. the theatre 
will afterwards play combinations. 
Hoyt's "Tin Soldier" opens March 3rd. 
The next regular stock season will open 
in September with an entire new com- 
pany. The theatre will be closed In 
August for extensive alterations. 

It is reported that Loie Fuller's English 
starring tour has left that lady $15,000 in 
debt. 

Cora Edsall, J. M. Hill's new star, to 
appear in "The Pembertons " at the 
Fifth Avenue Tiieatre, N. Y., is a very 
handsome girl. 

Mr. Billington, the original Pooh-Bah 
of "The Mikailo." arrived frogi England 
recentlv to join " The Gondoliers " at 
Palmer's, N.V. 

Manager Pollini, of the Hamburg 
(Germany) Theatre, lately refused a 
critic admission because he had written 
adversely about a pay. The critic 
brought suit and the local court decided 
thai the refusal to admit was illegal, 
and condemned the manager to pay the 
critic 500 marks for each refusal of ad- 
mission. 

The Theatre Comique, one of the old- 
est variety theatres in the city, has been 
purchased by M^ John G. Ersin, who 
reopens it on Saturday night with a fine 
conipan»'. I'eie Hall is business mana- 
ger and Billy Akarman stage manager 
under the new order of things. 

The skirt dance introduced in "Blue, 
beard, Jr.," at Niblo's Garden, N. Y._ 
has caught the town. It is a very pretty 
Veneznelian contra-danza, which is call- 
ed Marengo in Oaraccas and Porto Ca- 
bello. Duiilop's Stage News, an author- 
ity on damping, says, "It is composed of 
legs and lace." 

So the crystal slipper provided for Cin« 
derella is, after all, a mistake. It ap- 
pears that Cinderella's first biographer 
was a Frenchman, and in bis description 
of her slippers heu edthe obscure Latin 
word, veir, which signities soft and beau- 
tiful fur. Soni'! time after another 
Frenchman edited the history in a more 
popular form, and for veir he substituted 
a word of similar sound to French ears, 
but bearing a totally ditTerent meaning. 
He wrote pan'oufles de yerre, which 
means glass slipper^i. 

Dora Wiley, the wife of Richard Gold- 
en ("Old Jed Prouty"), is to star next 
season in a musical fantasy written ex- 
pre-isly for her by William Gill, who as- 
sisted Golden on the dramatic composi- 
tion of "Old .led Prouty." Charles Mc-

SARA BERNHARDT IN A PAS- 
SION PLAY. 

Any one who ever witnessed the per- 
formance of poor, persecuted Salmi 
Morse's Passion Play at the Grand Opera 
House can never forget the devotional 
ftelings it inspired. No play on the 
modern stage ever awakened so acutely 
the emotions of its audience, and if it 
had not been interdicted by the power 
of religious bigotry it would have been 
the iu>tigator of a revival of a series of 
Scri!>ture plays grand in their concep- 
tion, motives and effect. The world will 
return U> its middle age mvsteries or 
Scripture i.lavs a^-nin, ihongfi the time 
may not be yet at hand. The wonderful 
impersonation of Sara Bernhardt's Joan 
of Arc has awakened in the grandest of 
our inspirational ac resses a religious 
enthusiasm that has before been spoken 
of. The latest Paris dispatches in orm 
us that she has determined to appear 
during Easter week as the Viririn Mary 
in a Passion play modeled on the mys- 
tery plavs of the middle ages. 

When' Bernhardt was at Rome study- 
ing forJoai; of Arc, the dispa'.ih tells us 
' She set herself to read all the works 
ever writcn relative to the Maid of Or- 
leans, 'fiie t elter to leel the holy en- 
tliusiasm which pervades the character, 
she included in her reading the lives of 
a numDcr of saints whose characteristics 
had an analogy to those of the heroine 
of Donireniy. 

"The history of biblical heroines also 
claimed her alien" ion. In the course of 
perusal of the Scriptures Mme. Bern- 
tiardt was struck hy the dramatic inter- 
est of the life of the Virgin. Why 
should not she play the character? she 
mused, ami the idea germinated." 

Bernhardt applied to M. ilarancourt, 
the poet who adapted into verse Shake- 
speare's "Merchant of Venice" for the 
O ieon, to write tlie Passion play. The 
dramatist devoted weeks of study to the 
work, resulting in a religious drama of 
1.5(X) verses, that he admits may excite 
bitter animadversion, but lioiies that 
the piece would carry in itself its own 
justitication. 

"I have not written a sinsle line," says 
ilaiancourt in an interview, which can 
wound the reli^jious sentiment ot spec- 
tators in outlining the life of the Virgin. 
The character of the son, morever, is 
Str.ctly sacred. I have not put into his 
mouth a single word to show that he is 
a man and not the Son of God. 

•'In order to avoid miscnnception,'' 
concluded Harancourt, "I want every- 
one to recognize that the piece is a sacred 
drama, just as much as a mys ery play." 
M. Porel, the manager of the Odeon, 
has, it is stated, accepted this Passion 
play. M. Gamier, who accompanied 
Mme. Bernnardt to America, is to under- 
take the character of the Mess ah. Ac- 
cording to present arrangements, omy 
three performances are to be given. 

Maggie Mitchell and company appear 
this week at the Bush Street Theatre in 
her new comedy-drama of "Ray" — a rav 
of dramatic sunshine, warm, pure and 
genial, such as we have not had here for 
an indefinite period. 

Tlie Orpheum has rednced its admis- 
sion to 10 cenis; best reserved seats, 25 
cents, 

Helen Dauvray is to return to the 
stage next season in "The Whirlwind," 
a new play to be written by Sydney 
Rosenfeld. 

Leadville, Col., is to have a new $50,- 
000 opera house next Spring. 

Will A. Mack and Blanche Sherwood, 
of the "Keep it Dark" Co., were married 
at Minneapolis recently— and now its 
out. 

Among the stranded companies re- 
cently in Denver were Goodyear, 'ook 
& Dillon's Minstrels and the Miaco 
"Humpty-Dumpty." 

Sara Bernhardt has begun the study 
of Romeo in English, and may play it to 
Miss Margaret Mather's Juliet in Amer- 
ica next season. 

An English syndicate has been formed 
to establish a circuit of theatres in En- 
gland, similar to the circuits in this 
country. They intend to use American 
plays, 

Henry Pcttitt promises to visit New 
York next Spring to rehearse his new 
play, 'London, Day by Day." 

The successes of the season so far can 
he counted on tlie fingers of one hand 
without using the thumb. 

It is reported that John Wild will re 
join Harrigan's company next season. 

March 3rd will be th" first ni-ht of 
Cleveland's Magnificent Minstrels at the 
Bush, "A Hole in the Ground" Company 
at the Calif .rnia, and "A Tin Soldier" 
ditto at tlie Alcazar. 

Managers Maguire, Rial A Osbourne 
will renew iheir dramatic season at the 
Grand Opera House on Sunday evening, 
March 2nd, with Augustin Daly's travel- 
ing company in his oopular comedies, 
•'An Arabian Night,"^ followed by "A 
Night Off." The Grand will herafter play 
a long list of Eastern combinations, stars 
and companies, in place of relying upon 
iis stock company for an attraciion. 'The 
prices will be 15, 25. 50 and 75 cents. 

The Abbey-Grau Opera Company will 
give no extra nights. Saturday will be 
the last opera night. The company go 
direct to Denver. 

Robert Mantell opens in Chicago Feb, 
24th, for an engagement of two weeks, 
during which he will be seen in "The 
Corsican Brothers." 

Maggie Mitchell opens her two-weeks 
engagement at the New Bush Street 
Theatre this week in her new play of 
"Ray," a domestic story of New England 
life, in which this ^reat emotional ac- 
tress has achieved such a success in the 
Eastern cities. Cast and synopsis in 
the Bush's programme announcement 
elsewhere in Fioako. There will be nu 
Sunday night performances at the Bush 
during Maggie Mttcliell's engagement.

A CARD TO THE PUBLIC. 



Having purchased the above theatre, one of the oldest in 
the city, formerly known as Buckley's Orisinal Varieties, I in- 
tend to make it one of the best places of arau.sement that money 
can do. I have had it tlioronghly renovated, new scenery, 
plenty of light, and will make it my aim to employ none bui 
the best of artists, so when you witness one pert.irmance yoa 
can cheerfully go out and tell your friends that you have seea 
one of the best and most entertaining shows in the city. My 
attachees will be Ladies and Gentlemen who will bo courteooa 
to all. 

I will have none but the best of wines, liquors and cigars 
to serve over my bar. and all I ask is your patronage, which \ 
am sure after one evening's pleasure I shall always retain. 

I remain yours respectfully,

PROFESSIONAL PICKINGS. 



Surely, San Francisco's climate must 
be changing for the worse when hail- 
■qnalls come up two or three times a 
day and slap us in the face. 

Take in the Prize Carnival Masquerade 
Ball of theVerein-Eintracht at the Me- 
chanics' Pavilion on Saturday night. It 
will be a grand att'air. 

Mr. Lawrence Barrett 'returns from 
his pleasure trip in Europe about May 
1st, when he will begin active prepara- 
tions lor his next starring tour with Ed- 
win Booth, which opens early in October 
next. 

The KendalJ? have sold a pLiy called 
"Passion Flowers" to Mrs. Chas. Wynd" 
bam. Mrs. Kendall says it is an ex- 
tremely delicate little plav, written lor 
her many years ago by her brother, T. 
W. Rubertson, author of "Caste." 

The first annual benefit of the Treas- 
urers' Club of America (an organization 
of theatrical tre.i.'^urer.'*) will take place 
at the Broadway Theatre, N. Y., on Sun- 
day eveninn. April 20th, for which oc- 
casion a monstrous programme is now 
being arranged. 

"Human Nature," a melodrama which 
is justly ?on^idered as one of Drury 
Lane's greatest successes, will be pro- 
duced ill this country first at the Boston 
Theatre, Boston, and afterward at the 
Star Tlieatre, New York. Mr. Eugene 
Tompkins has secured the American 
rights ot the play. Mr. Henry Neville, 
a leading English actor, will take the 
principal part. 

Mrs. Kendal has a passion for Ibsen 
the Nor«ef,ian poet. She is an anxious 
to play the mother in his drama Of 
"Ghosts'" especially the scene where the 
mother gives poison to her son rather 
than let him endure the horrors of mad- 
ness. •'Certainly," she .-ays, "it is not 
a play that VDUiig people should see. but 
it ought to oe played, and well played, 
before an invited audience." 

Joseph Jefferson and W. J. Florence 
begin a three weeks' engagement in New 
York March 10th, during which they 
will be seen in a special and handsome 
revival of "The Heir-at-Law." 

John R. Rogers, the husband of Min- 
nie Palmer, wrote to W. W, Randall, of 
New York, explaining the sudden col- 
lapse of "Cinderella," the costly holiday 
•pectacleat Her Majesty's Theatre, Lon- 
don. Minnie was the Cinderella of the 
■how. Mr. Rogers says that the pro- 
duction cost about 1125.000, and the loos- 
es, as represented to him, are about $S5,- 
000. The enterprise was under the di- 
rection of Henry J. Leslie who is also 
the Ifssee of the Lyric Theatre, but it 
was backed by outside parties. Rogers 
■avs tlint the show netted a profit of 
from |4,000 to $5,000 weekly, but some- 
body drew all tlie money and did not 
pay the people. [Other accounts say 
that the spectacle failed to draw alter the 
first week, and was plaved to a nightly 
loss. — Ed. Fioabo.] Minnie Palmer re- 
ceived $2,400 lor two weeks' work, but 
when the show closed over |1,000 was 
still owing to her. After playing in the 
English provinces Minnie Palmer will 
return to this country. Her American 
tour opens in Philadelphia Oct. 6th.

King" next week the Alcazar stock com- 
pany season will close, as the theatre

pany. The theatre will be closed in

of "The Mikado." arrived from England 
recentlv to join " The Gondoliers " at 
Palmer"'., N. Y. 

Manager Pollini, of the Hamburg

and condr ned the manager to pay ihe 
critic 60C .arks for each refusal of ad- 
mission, 
Adele Payne is coming bacl? from En-

tion in the world, follows Maggie Mitch- 
ell at the Bush St, Theatre. March 3rd. 

The Eighth Masauerade Ball given by

Maggie Miichell and company appear

Mitchell's engagement. 

So the crystal slipper provided for Cin 
derella is. after all, a mistake. It ap- 
pears that Cinderella's first biographer 
was a Frenchman, and in his description 
of her slippers heu edthe obscure Latin 
word, veir, which signifies soft and beau- 
tiful fur. Som« time after another 
Frenchman edited the history in a more 
popular form, and for veir he substituted 
a word of similar sound to French ears, 
but bearing a totally different meaning. 
He wrote panioufles de verre, which 
means glass slippers. 

Dora Wiley, the wife of Richard Gold- 
en ("Old Jed Prouty"), is to star next

tening to a rehearsal of "Esclarmonde"

the bad playing of the orchestra, the 
lealer began to swear. Then the bell of 
the teleptioiie rang violently, a rush for 
the machine was made and the answer 
was, "It is the Queen; please conduct 
the rehearsal without swearing.Sapristi." 

The Theatre Comique, one of the old- 
est variety theatres in the city, has been 
purchased by Mr. John G. Krsin, who 
reopens it on Saturday night with a fine 
compan.-. Pete Hall is business mana- 
ger and Billy Akarman stage manager 
under the new order of things. 

The skirt dance introduced in "Blue' 
beard, Jr.," at Niblo's Garden, N. Y., 
has caught the town. It is a very pretty 
Veiiez'ielian contra-danza, which is call- 
ed Marengo in Caraccas and Porto Ca-

legs and lace."

PROFESSIONAL PICKINGS. 



6,S00 took in the Carnival Masquerade 
Ball of the Verein-Eintracht at the Me- 
chanics' I'avilion on Saturday night. It 
was a grand aft'air. 

Mr. Lawrence Barrett Ireturns from 
his pleasure trip in Europe about May 
Ist, when he will begin active prepara- 
tions lor his next starring tour with Ed- 
win Booth, which opens early In October 
next. 

The Kendalls have sold a play called 
"Passion Flowers" to Mrs. Chas. Wynd- 
ham. Mrs. Kendall says it is an ex- 
tremely delicate little play, written for 
her many years ago by her brother, T. 
W. Robertson, author of "Caste." 

The first annual benefit of the Treas- 
urers' Club of Ameri(a(an organization 
of theatrical treasurers) will take place 
at the Broadway Theatre, N. Y., on Sun- 
day eviniuf;. April 20th, for which oc- 
casion a monstrous programme is now 
being arranged. 

"Human Nature,"a melodrama which 
is justly ccn>idered as one of Drury 
Lane's greatest successes, will be pro- 
duced in this country first at the Boston 
Theatre, Boston, and afterward at the 
Star Theatre, New York, Mr. Eugene 
Tompkins ha.s secured the American 
rights of tln» play. Mr. Henry Neville, 
a leading English actor, will take the 
principal part. 

Mrs. Kendal has a passion for Ibsen 
the Norwegian poet. She is iin anxious 
to play the mother in his drama of 
"Ghosts'" especially the scene where the 
mother gives poison to her son rather 
than let him endure the horrors of mad- 
ness. ■'Certainly," she ^avs, "it is not 
a play that young people should see. but 
it ought to oe played, and well played, 
tiefore an invited audience." 

Joseph Jefferson and \V. J. Florence 
begin a three weeks' engagement in New 
York March 10th, during which they 
will be seen in a special and handsome 
revival of "The Heir-at-Law." 

John K. Rogers, the husband of Min- 
nie Palmer, wrote to W. W, Randall, of 
Kew York, explaining the sudden col- 
lapse of "Cinderella," the costly holiday 
spectacle at Her Majesty's Theatre, Lon- 
don. Minnie was the Cinderella of the 
■how. Mr. Rogers says that the pro- 
duction cost about $125,000, and the loss- 
es, as represenietl to him, are about |85,- 
000. The enterprise was under the di- 
rection of Henry J. Leslie who is also 
the lessee of the Lyric Theatre, but it 
was backed by outside parties. Rogers 
iavs that the show netted a profit of 
from $4,000 to $5,000 weekly, but some- 
body drew all the money and did not 
oay the people. [OtI.er accounts say 
►hat the spectacle failed to draw alter the 
Lrst week, and was plaved to a nightly 
loss. — Ed. Figaro.] Minnie Palmer re"- 
eeived $2,400 lor two weeks' work, but 
when the show closed over $1,000 was 
itill owing to her. After playing in the 
English provinces Minnie Palmer will 
return to this country. Her American 
tour opens in Philadelphia Oct. 6th. 

With the production of "The Silver 
King" next week the Alcazar stock com- 
pany season will close, as the theatre 
will afterwards play combinations. 
Hoyt's "Tin Qoldier" opens March 3rd. 
The next regular stock season will open 
in September with an entire new com- 
pany. The theatre will be closed in 
August for extensive alterations. 

It is reported that Loie Fuller's English 
starring tour has left that lady $15,000 in 
debt. 

Cora Bdsall, J. M. Hill's new star, to 
appear in "The Pembertons " at the 
Fifth Avenue Theatre, N. Y., is a very 
handsome girl. 

Mr. Billington, the original Poob-Bah 
of "The Mikado." arrived from England 
recently to join " The Gondoliers " at 
Palmer's, N. Y. 

Man-^ger PoUini, of the Hamburg 
(Germany) "^heatre, lately refused a 
eritic admib,. on because he had written 
adversely about a play. The critic 
brought suit and the local court decided 
that the refusal to aomit was illegal, 
and condemned the manager to pay the 
critic oOO ni s for each refusal of ad- 

ission. 

Adele Payne is coming back from En- 
gland for a Spring starring tour with Ir- 



Cleveland's Magnificent Haverly Min- 
strels, the strongest minstrel organizaj 
tion in the world, follows Maggie Mitch-

So the crystal slipper provided for Cin 
derella is, after all, a mistake. It ap- 
pears that Cinderella's first biographer 
was a Frenchman, and in his description 
of her slippers he Uied the obscure Latin 
word, veir, which signifies soft and beau- 
tiful fur. Some time after another 
Frenchman edited the history in a more 
popular form, and for veir he substituted 
a word of similar sound to French ears, 
but bearing a totally different meaning. 
He wrote pantoufles de verre, which 
means glass slippers.

was, "It is the Queen; please conduct 
the rehearsal without swearing,Sapristi." 

The Theatre Comique, one of the old- 
est variety theatres in the city, has been

ger and Billy Akarman stage manager

The skirt dance introduced in "Blue- 
beard, Jr.," at Niblo's Garden, N. Y.

Mechanics' Pavilion— The Terein ElU' 
trachl's Prize Carnival. 

Tbe Qrand Prize Carnival of tbo Verein EIn- 
traobt came cfl at the Mechanica' Fivlllon on 
Saturday night, ;2J, and certainly excelled any 
marqaerade ball this aoclety baa ever given. 
Ita main feature waa Itt grand march with 
i'Oooatnmed maiqaera In tbe proceailoo and 
with lt.1 alz grand emblematic floats. 

Afterwarda the great hall was fllled with 
1,000 additional meir/ maiquers uutll near 
daylight. The attendance was about 6,E00, aod 
tbe ball waa a perfect success In every wsy. 

The first flaat represented sunny " Spring 
headed by four fairies and mytbologloal genii, 
eontelnlng tbe Qoddess Flors on her throne of 
fl'jwers followed by her sttendADts. Tbe sac 
oeedlog divisions were "Summer," fruit end 
hArvest crowned; "Autumn" end her vIotAge, 
with Bacobus and hia worshippers; the fourth 
flost In the ssme division wss NImrod, bis 
hunters and tbeir game; the next float was 
loe throned "Winter," the Qerman Ohrlstmas 
Tree, and Empress Eatherlne and her Ooart at 
the Winter Festival on the Neva, and ti;e laat 
float represented Prince and Princess Osrnlva 
surrounded by their harlequins, clowna col- 
nmbinea and fun mAkers In general, conclud- 
ing with a quadrille on skates. 

The whole dlsplsy was most creditable to 
(be managers and getters-np of the csrnival, 
and has added to the reputation the Verein 
Elotracht has already for its superior annual 
oarnlvAl bAlIs.

Any one who ever witnessed the per- 
formance of poor, persecuted Salmi 
Morse's Passion Play at the Grand Opera 
House can never forget the devotional 
feelings it inspired. No play on the 
modern stage ever awakened so asutely 
the emotions ef its iiudience, and if it 
had not been intenV.cted by the power 
of religious })igotry it would have been 
the instigator of a revival of a series of 
Scripture plays grand in their concep- 
tion, motives and effect. The world will 
return to its middle age mysteries or 
Scripture plays again, though the time 
may not be yet at hand. The wonderful 
impel sonation of Sara Bernhardt's Joan 
of Arc has awakened in the grandest of 
our inspirational actresses a religious 
enthusiasm that has before been spoken 
of. The latest Paris dispatches inform 
us that she has determmed to appear 
during Easter week as the Virgin Mary 
in a Passion play modeled on the mys- 
tery plays of the middle ages. 

When" Bernhardt was at Rome study- 
ing for Joan of Arc, the dispatch tells us, 
' She set herself to read all the works 
ever writ'en relative to the Maid of Or- 
leans. 'Tlie t)etter to feel tbe holy en- 
thusiasm which pervades the character, 
she included in her reading the lives of 
a number of saints whose characteristics 
had an analogy to those of the heroine 
of Domremy. 

"The history of biblical heroines also 
claimed her attention. In the course of 

Eerusal of the Scriptures Mme. Bern- 
ardt was struck by the dramatic inter- 
est of tbe life of the Virgin. Why 
should not she play the character? she 
mused, and the idea geriuinated." 

Bernhardt applied to M. Harancourt, 
the poet who adapted into verse Shake- 
speare's "Merchant of Venice" for the 
Odeon, to write the Passion play. The 
dramatist devoted weeks of study to the 
work, resulting in a religions drama of 
1500 verses, tliat he admits may excite 
bitter animadversion, but hopes that 
the piece would carry in itself its own 
justitication. 

"I have not written a single line," says 
Harancoart in an interview, which can 
wound the religious sentiment ot spec- 
tators in outlining the life of the Virgin. 
The character of the son, morever, is 
striCtly sacred. I have not put into his 
mouth a single word to show that he la 
a man and not the Son of Ood.

mission.

er, who is approaching the three-score-

The skirt dance introduced in "Blue- 
beard, Jr.," at Niblo's Garden, N. Y., 
has caught the town. It is a very pretty

be counted on the fingers of one hand 
without using the thumb. 

It is reported that John Wild will re 
join Harrigan's company next season. 

So the crystal slipper provided for Cin 
derella is, after all, a mistake. It ap- 
pears that Cinderella's first biographer 
was a Frenchman, and in his description 
of her slippers he used the obscure Latin 
word, veir, which signifies soft and beau- 
tiful fur. Some time after another 
Frenchman edited the history in a more 
popular form, and for veir he substituted 
a word of similar sound to French ears, 
but bearing a totally different meaning. 
He wrote pantoufles de verre, which 
means glass slioDers.

New t'aliromla Tbeatre- 

Boyt's farcical fnc-comedy, "A Hole in tbe 
Qronod," Is tbs rippling attraction that comei 
back to us In tbe rotary of time, without a 
blockade, this week, with tbe stranger played 
by a new-comer, Barry 0. Stanley. The aame 
baeeball Maicot. commercial tourlate, deaf 
women, telegraph Rlrl. lunch counter waitress, 
hotel ronncra, ambltloue railroad boy and 
tailor-made girls grace its action and keep 
things moving lively along. 

There Is a deal ol fun to be got out of the 
comical Bltuatlons and lively hurrah baslneas 
of this play, which was heartily lellshed by 
tbe large audience present. 

Baldwia Theatre. 

We have a dramatic treat in atore •■ us a 
tbe Baldwin this week In tbe return of the 
natural comedian, Sol Smith Bnseell, in tbe 
eomedy-drama. "A Poor Belatlon," wblob was 
here about a year ago. Since that time the 
play baa been "built op," revised and tonohed 
np here and there by lu author and Mr. Bua- 
aell. It Is now, 18 tis rtoonstrnoted form, 
as terse a piece of rflaotlve dramatic work as 
there Is on tbe stage, and Its recent successes 
In New York, Boston. Philadelphia and Cbl- 
oago snbatantiates the assertion. In touching 
pathos. In quaint and quiet humor, Mr. Baa. 
sell's Noah Vale Is pronounced worthy to rank 
by tbs side of Jefferson's BIp Van Winkle by 
critics who can find no one else to compare 
bim with. 

OrpheDm Tbeaire 

With redaction of tbe prices to 10 cents 
for gallery, lower floor seats for 28 cents 
and the best reserved seats for CO cents, the 
Orpheum's specialty season is booming 
along with a goodly array of diversified talent, 
consisting of Mile. Alle, with her den of per- 
forming reptilei; Mons. Melville In "La Chute 
dn del"; tbe Three Jordan Slaters; Mons. 
Obas. Alle, comedian; Musical Fletcher; Miss 
Lolu Ward, operatic vocalist; B. Hewlette, tbe 
great wire-walker; Bailey & Reynolds, Irish 
punsters; Avery Brothers, aerial performers, 
and others. 

Horosco's Amphitheatre. 

"The Oreat BIythe Case," with added sensa- 
tional scenes, forms tbe bill at Morosco's tbis 
week, with all tbe Alcazar scenery giving ac- 
curate viewa of San Francisco in 1849 in 1883 
and of the present time. The first act shows 
tbe embarkaUon of Tom BIythe, tbe Gypsy, 
for California. Tbe next acts show his Oall- 
fomla life from peddler to millionaire, and tbe 
last act Is devoted to giving a life-like repre- 
sentation of the trial, with Florence, Alice 
Edltb, and all tbe lawyers, claimants, witness- 
es, etc., ID court ia tbe legal fight for Dine 
mlllloni. 

Mr. James U. Ward and Miss Carrie Clark 
Ward have been engaged to play their original 
charactera of Mr. and Mrs. Barney Flynn, 

The oast calls for Messrs. Vinton, Carden, 
Bolden, Owens, Reynolds, Franklin, Miss May 
Nannary, Miss Kitty Belmonr and tbe whole 
company. 

Manager Morosco nnderslands tbe tastes of 
bis patrons. Be presents attractive plays with 
a fully competent company, and the results 
are satisfactory to both manager and people.

cents. Front reserved seats 10 cents extra. 

Bella Union Theatre. 

Barry Montague's latest dramatization, "Jack 
tbe BIpper," giving bis conception of that nn- 
known noted criminal, will be this week's 
bill. Mr. Montague was fulfilling a lengthy 
engagement lu London duriug the time these 
startling attrocttles were committed in the 
Wbitecbapcl district, and tbe characters Intro- 
dnced Into the play are drawn from actual ob- 
servation from life. It is a great melodramauo 
sensation. 

Flynn & Walker, tbe sketch team, and P. 0, 
Foy, tenor vocalist, are new, and Lida Qard- 
ner, Camllle Kenyon and Gilbert & Qoldie pat 
in reappearances this week.

PROFESSIONAL PICKINGS. 



The Sarasate and D'Alberl concert, 
announced for Tliursday at the Grand 
Opera House, has been postponed until 
Saturday night. The company were en 
route for Portland, via the Union Pacific 
short route, and getting snowbound at 
Portello, after a week's detention, have 
retraced their tracks to 0;jden, canceled 
their Porthmd dales, and are beaded this 
way via the Central Pacific. 

The rcipient of the benefit at Odd 
Fellows' Hall on Thursday nitrht, Mr. 
Stephen W. Leach, is an old-time stage 
■veteran. He was a member of Mitchell's 
New York Olympic, 444 Broadway, in 
1846, and was afterwards a member of 
Wni. H. Burton's theatre on Chamber 
street, oppo-ite the City Hall, New York, 
He landed in San Francisco on the 1st 
day of January, 1851, as a member of 
Mme. Anna Thillon's Opera Troupe, and 
has resideil here since, Mr. Leach suc- 
cessivelj' belonged to Mme. Anna Bishop 
and Kate Hayes' companies, the Biancbi 
Oper;i Company, the Squires-Escott Co., 
the Lyster 0| era Company; and ai'ter- 
■wards he fell into the walks of the drama 
and joined the California Theatre Co. 
when it was opened, and remained a 
member of it for eleven years, princi- 
pally as superintendent of the musical 
portions of its stage productions, though 
Mr. Leach oftmies was in tlie casts. It 
was Harry Edwards and himself that 
made such hits as the two genteel bum- 
mers in the eider Chanfrau's drama of 
"Kit" on its first production here. Since 
Lis retirement from the stage Mr. Leach 
has devoted bis time to mnsic teaching 
as long as bis health permitted. 

H. Grattan Done'.ly, the author of the 
successful farce comedy, "Natural Gas," 
has written a new skit, entitled "A Pair 
of Jacks," which is shortly to be pre- 
sented by an admirable company. Mits 
Nina Hey ward, a prominent Southern 
society belle, who made a very lavoratde 
impression here as one of the nieces in 
"A Brass Monkey." has been especially 
engaged to en ate the part of the young 
Southern heiress. She is a tall, hand- 
some young lady, with a magnificent so- 
prano voice, and is an actress of marked 
ability. Contracts have been signed for 
tbe early appearance of this company at 
the Bush Sireet Theatre during the Sum- 
mer. 

The advance representatives of W. 
S. Cleveland's Magnificent Haverly Min- 
strels, Mr. Harry W. Semon and Mr. P. 
S. Mattox, are in town paving the way 
for the advent of this great minstrel 
show that opens at the Bush St. Theatre 
on Monday night. 

Miss Kemler, a noted equestrienne, 
who was one of the members of Buffalo 
Bill's Wild West Companv when e.\- 
hibiting at Paris last Summer, died at 
the residence of her parents in Sacra- 
mento, on Sunday, of pneumonia. She 
was a daring race and hurdle rider, and 
frequently won the first prizes given by 
the State agricultural associations in 
Nevada and California. 

A London dispatch of the 23d states 
that Charles Overton has secured the 
American rights of "A Pair of Specta- 
cles," produced this week at Garrick's 
Theatie, for the New York Madison 
Square Theatre management. 

Mr. I,,awrence Barrett ! returns from 
his pleasure trip in Europe about May 
1st, when he will begin active prepara- 
tions lor bis next starring tour with Ed- 
win Booth, which opens early in October 
next. 

With the production of "The Silver 
King" t' •<; week the Alcazar stock com- 
pany s>...jon will close, as the theatre 
"wfll afterwards play combinations. 
Hoyt's "Tin Soldier" opens March 3rd. 
Th'' nest regular stock season will open 
in .deptember with an entire new com- 
paay. T • theatre will be closed in 
J\.<ig;a8t li. . extensive alterations.

THE GREAT MINSTREL COM- 
PANY. 

(iorgeous is the word for W. S. Cleve- 
land's Haverly Minstrels' first part, en- 
titled "Venetian Nights." Here is a 
description of it taken from the Bufl'alo 
Courier: 

To be imagined it must be seen, for be- 
ing like nothing ever previously attempt- 
ed, it cannot be fittingly described. Mr. 
Cleveland's idea was to copy the methods 
of the Venetians, the pioneers in min- 
strel elfects. With that intent the hue 
of all the stage settings is Italian, the 
end men are dressed as court jesters of 
the fourteenth century and the vocalists 
are attired in the tights and purple of 
Venetian noblemen of that period, 

A Venetian chorus signalizes the rising 
of the heavy silk plush curtains that 
form a border and wings, disclosing the 
Doge (Leonardi Donati), year 1606, sur- 
rounded bv his courtiers in the costly 
raiment ot" that period, a profusion of 
gold and velvet, silk and jewels of rarest 
nature. Immediately JoUowing this 
courtly displav of f,randeur another set 
of ditlerent tinted draperies are tormed 
into similar hangings, this time discios- 
ine a Venetian bridge, on which are 
seated the trumpeteers and musicians of 
the Doge, who liave been summoned to 
the palace to lend their aid to His Excel- 
leucy's festival. 

At the same moment from either side 
of the bridge appear in motley costume 
fantastic, rich and gaudy, the Royal 
Jesters, to entertain with "eloquence un- 
adorned and wit to madness near allied." 
Then another curtain is drawn aside to 
fall into pretty folds, revealing a trans- 
formation more gorgeous than the fairv 
grottoes of Elfinland, a jjrcspective view 
of Venice with its towering steeples, its 
mighty domes and its balmy sky. In 
the foreground ot the beautiful city by 
the water one may see gondolas plying 
to and fro in the placid stream, and from 
the tiny ?ail ot the little masts may be 
read the name of each melody as it is 
rendered by the Doge's command, while 
slowly passes this picturesque craft with 
its diminutive pondolier basking in the 
sun upon the waters and heedless of the 
carnival within the jeweled halls of this 
ancestral palace of Venetian beauty. 

The benefit of Stephen W. Leach, the 
veteran actor, vocalist and music teach- 
er, who is approaching the three-score- 
vears-and-ten period of his existence, 
will come off under the auspices of the 
Bohemian Club at Odd Fellows' Hall on 
Thursday evening. A very choice vocal 
and instrumental entertainment will be 
given. Tickets can be had at tlie music 
stores and of the members of the Bo- 
hemian Club. 

The New York Casino Comic Opera 
Company will follow W. S. Cleveland's 
Magnificent Haverly Minstrels at the 
Bush St. Theatre on March 18th, opening 
in a gorgeous representation of "Nadjy,'' 
as produced at the Casino, its first pro- 
duction in this city. 

W. S. Cleveland's Magnificent Haverly 
Minstrels are as far ahead of all other 
minstrel combinations as the old Hav- 
erly Minstrels were in their day. 

Sol Smith Russell opens in his every- 
where success, "A Poor Relation," 'at 
the Bahlwin this week. 

Margaret Mather has given flO,000 for 
Jules Barbier's play, "Jean d'Arc," in 
which Sara Bernhardt has made such a 
great success. 

Richard Stahl's new opera, "The Sea 
King," will have its first production at 
the Chestnut, Philadelphia, April 28th. 

Manager Maguireand Acting Manager 
Rial renew their dramatic season at the 
Grand Opera House on Sunday evening, 
March 2nd, with Augustin Daly's travel- 
ing company in his best comedy, "A 
Night Off." The Grand will herafter play 
a long list of Eastern combinations, stars 
and companies, in place of relying upon 
its stock company for an attraction. 'The 
prices will be 15, 25. 50 and 75 cents. 

Henry E. Abbey's Italian opera season 
at the Metropolitan, New York, will be- 
gin March 24th and last for four weeks. 
The prices have been fixed at $7 for or- 
chestra seats, and Patti and Tamagno 
will appear on alternate nights. 

The Theatre Comique, one of the old- 
est variety theatres in the city, has been 
purchased by Mr. John G. Ersin, who 
reopened it Saturday night with a fine 
compan>'. Pete Hall is business mana- 
ger and Billy Akarman stage manager 
under the new order of things. 

The skirt dance introduced in "Blue- 
beard, Jr.," at Niblo's Garden, N. Y., 
has caught the town. It is a very pretty 
Veiieznelian contra-danza, which is call- 
ed Marengo in Caraccas and Porto Ca- 
bello. Dunlop's Stage News, an author- 
ity on dancing, says, "It is composed of 
legs and lace." 

Leadvilie, Col., is to have a new $50,- 
000 opera house next Spring. 

Sara Bernhardt has begun the study 
of Romeo in English, and may play it to 
Miss Margaret Mather's Juliet in Amer- 
ica next season. 

The first annual benefit of the Treas- 
urers' Club of America (an organization 
of theatrical treasurers) will take place 
at the Broadway Theatre, N. Y., on Sun- 
day evening, April 20th, for which oc- 
casion a monstrous programme is now 
being arranged. 

"Human Nature," a melodrama which 
is justly considered as one of Drury 
Lane's greatest successes, will be pro- 
duced ill this country first at the Boston 
Theatre, Boston, and afterward at the 
Star Theatre, New York, Mr. Eugene 
Tompkins has secvired the American 
rights of the play. Mr. Henry Neville, 
a leading English actor, will take the 
principalpart. 

The Kendalls have sold a play called 
"Passion Flowers" to Mrs. Chas. Wynd-

baaeball Maicot. commercial tonrlsta, deaf 
women, telegraph girl, Innch counter waltreas, 
hotel mnncrs, ambitions railroad boy and 
Ullor-made girls grace ita aollon and keep 
tblnga moving lively along. 

Tbere Is a deal of fun to be got out of the 
comical situations and lively hnrrah bnaineaa 
of this play, which was heartily lellahed by 
the large audience preaent. 

Baldwin Theatre. 
We have a dramatic treat In ato?e r ns » 
tbe Baldwin tbia week In the lelnm of the 
natural oomedian. Sol Smith Russell. In tbe 
eomedy-drsma. "A Poor Relation," which was

play has been "built up," revised and tonobed 
up here and Ihere by Ita author and Mr. Rns- 
i«U, l« H nwi 'n •'' r'eon9*»a«»«<l '<>"". 
ai terse a piece of tfTectlve dramatio work as I 
there ia on the stsge, and Ita recent succeaiea 
In Nevr York, Boston. Phlladelpbia and Obl- 
oagoaubstaotiates the assertion. In tonching 
pathos. In quaint and quiet humor, Mr. Roa.

by tbe side of JifTereon's BIp Van Winkle by 
oiliire who can find no one else to compare 
bim with.

"The Great Blythe Case." with added aenaa- 
tlonal scenes, forms the bill at Morosco'a this 
week, with all tbe Alcazar soenery giving ac- 
curate viewa of San Franoiaoo In 1849 In 1883 
and of tbe preaent time. Tbe first act shows 
the embarkation of Tom Blyibe, the Qypay, 
for Callfomlk. The next acts show bis Cali- 
fornia life from peddler to millionaire, and the 
last act is devoted to giving a llfc-like repre- 
senUtlon of the trial, with Florence, Alice 
Edllb, and all the lawyers, olalmants, wltneas- 
ea.etc. In court ia the legal fight for nine 
mlUiooa.

Bella Union Theatre. 

Harry Montague's latest dramatization, "Jack

bill. Mr. Montague was fulfilling a lengtbj 
engRgement Id London during the time theae 
startling attrocltles were committed In the 
Wbltechapel district, and tbe cbaraoters intro-

audience was a lar(;e one and very en- 
thusiastic. Tl'e press and pulilic en- 
dorsed the masterly perJortnance and 
m.'ffniHcent production. With the ex- 
ception of the PaitiopeninROt 'he Audi- 
torium, Miinslield's Kicliard III is the 
bipge^t draniaiic sensation tor years. 
Miss Beatrice Cameron also ninde a Iiit 
as Lady Aine. The piece bids fair to 
play to packed liou^es during tlie week. 
Slanst'.eld recciv.d many cal s alter each 
act and was compelled to make aspeecli. 

A Lon<lon dispatch <>f the 24lh inst.

opened at the St. James Thtatre that 
evening in "A ; You Like It." A bril- 
liant audience. wiiich iiic'ud' d the Prince 
and Princes of Wa' >. assembled to pre t 
her. It is not tlie lirst t we ttiat Mrs. 
Lanptry If.is appeared as Rosalind in 
London, she having undertaken that 
part at the Imperial Theatre in 1882. 
The critics claim a great improveineiit 
.In her acting and thai her present Rosa- 
ITnd is worthy tv> rank with some of the 
ablest and most delightful exponents of 
the character, and it certainly takes rank 
'with the besi work she has done on the 
stage. 

John A. Lane has bern engaged for the 
Booth-Barrett Company for next season.

THE GREAT MINSTREL COM- 
PANY. 

' Gorgeous is the word for W. S. Cleve- 
land's Haverly Minstrels' first part, en- 
titled "Venetian Nights." Here is a 
description of it taken from the Bufl'alo 
Courier: 

To be imagined it must be seen, for be- 
ing like nothing ever previou-ly attempt- 
ed, it cannot be httingly described. Mr. 
Cleveland's idea was to copy the methods 
of the Venetians, the pioneers in min- 
strel eltects. With that intent the hue 
ot all the stage settings is Italian, the 
end men are dressed as court jesters of 
the fourteenth century and the vocalists 
are attred in the tights and purple of 
Venetian nohlemen of that period, 

A Venetian chorus signalizes the rising 
of the heavy silk plush curtains that 
form a border and wings, disclosing the 
Dogf (Leoiiardi Donati). year 1606. sur- 
rounded bv his courtiers in the costly 
raiment 'ot" that period, ii profus on of 
gold and velvet, silk ami jewels of rarest 
nature. Immediately lollowing this 
courtly display of f,raiideur aiioiherset 
of ditlerent tiiited draperies are f. rmed 
into similar hangings, this time discos- 
iiiB a Venetian biidge, on wh ch are 
S' ated the trumpeteers and musicians of 
the Doge, who have been summoned to 
tlie palace to lend their aid to His Excel- 
lency's festival. 

At the same moment from either side 
of the bridge appear in motley costume 
fantastic, rich and gauay, the Koyal 
Jesters, to entertain with "eloquence un- 
adorned and wit to niadn' ss near allied." 
Then anotlier curtain is drawn aside to 
fall into pretty folds, revealing a trans- 
fornialion more gorgeous than the fairy 
grottoes of ElHnland, a prespective view 
ot Venice with its towering steeples, its 
miehly domes and its balmy sky. In 
the foreground ol the beautilul citv by 
the water (ne may see gondolas plyin< 
to and Iro in the nlacid stream, and Ironi 
the tiny sail o. the little masts may be 
read the name of each inel dy as it is 
rendered by the Doge's command, while 
slowly passes this picturesque craft with 
its diminutive sondolier liaskiiig in the 
sun upon the waters and heedle-s of the 
carnival' within the jeweled halls of this 
ancestral palace of Venetian beauty.

servation from life. It Is a great melodramatic 
lenaation.
